Golden Rules of Genealogy

I came across this neat graphic on the Got Genealogy? FB page.  A simple summary of some “Golden Rules of Genealogy.”

I love #1 – Speling Dusn’t Cownt.  How many times have I talked with people who really get hung up on spelling.  Typically, that changes once I show them how many ways I found their ancestors name or place of residence listed!

Which is your favorite rule?

What rule(s) would you add?
