Genealogy: a process of diminishing deception

What Is Genealogy? Philosophy, Education, Motivations and Future Prospects is an article by Bruce Durie in the inaugural issue of the open access journal Genealogy. It draws on the author’s philosophy, motivations and experiences in establishing educational/training courses and qualifications in a Scottish university context.

It "raises many issues possibly worthy of further scrutiny" in the hope that future issues of Genealogy will explore some of these ... motivational studies; the choice of ancestral identity; the nature of “genealogical proof”; standards and ethics; becoming a qualified profession.

Very interesting article - and I was interested in the upcoming special topic issues for this year as well. Hope it continues. Thanks for pointing it out, John.
