<p class="MsoNormal"><font face="Arial" size="2"><span style="font-size: 10pt;">I am
a grad student doing an online genealogy research degree from the
 University of Strathclyde ,
 Glasgow ,
 Scotland , and my thesis is on the
practice of citing sources in the amateur genealogist population.&nbsp; There has
been much concern among professionals about the integrity of family histories
floating around the internet and the amount of misinformation being shared due
to lack of proper documentation of sources.</span></font></p>
