It’s the first element of the Genealogical Proof Standard, and it’s central to determining whether we’ve established proof of our research claims. But what does “reasonably exhaustive research” mean in the context of client work? How do we meet the standard given professional constraints? We’ll dig into these questions and learn strategies to give us a better chance of meeting the standard within financial and time limitations.
