"A good genealogist has an innate pride in family and country and recognizes his or her duty to search out and record the truth. He or she becomes first of all a full time detective, a thorough historian, an inveterate snoop and at the same time a confirmed diplomat, a keen observer, a hardened skeptic, an apt biographer, a qualified linguist, a part-time lawyer, a studious sociologist and above all an accurate reporter"
