This book is a must-read for any serious genealogist. Dr. Jones takes the reader through the parts of the Genealogical Proof Standard in detail, with exercises at the end of each chapter that cement the concepts. He includes two articles from NGSQ (National Genealogical Society Quarterly) to illustrate his explanations of the GPS. Mastering Genealogical Proof is a thorough and easy to understand study of the Genealogical Proof Standard.

This book should be on every serious genealogist's bookshelf. If you want to take your research to the next level, read this book. Thomas Jones explains the concepts of genealogical proof in an easy-to-read way and provides plenty of practice in the exercises. I wish I had this kind of book years ago when I first started my research.

This book is an epic work in the field of genealogy. I will have to read it a number of times. I cannot recommend it enough to anyone that is a beginner or expert in genealogical research.
Excellent informative workbook. The exercises did a fine job reinforcing the principles.
