Interpreting Search Results and Understanding Genealogy Evidence: Accuracy in your genealogy records is a direct result of the way in which you record and organize your genealogy data: Pre-printed genealogy research forms--whether you enter the data with a pen by hand or whether you type the data on the computer screen--are tools of analysis. You choose the facts to enter on these research forms. This selection process is analysis. And when you record the right data and match the internal links in each record correctly, you can achieve a 96% success rate tracing hard-to-find ancestors.
