  • 3. Original and Derivative records
    • An original genealogical record or source is one that is just that – original. It was not copied from another record, and is considered the most reliable.
    • A derivative source is one that was copied from another record. This might be by transcription by hand or machine, photocopies, microfilm, or abstracts. The more layers of copying between a derivative record and the original, the more potential for problems
    • Because every repetition or recopying of data is an opportunity for error, the closer the derivative is to the original the more reliable the data are likely to be
  • 4. BMD records
