Elizabeth Shown Mills
Elizabeth Shown Mills is one of my favorite genealogical authors. I was absolutely delighted when I noticed that the Commercial Dispatch (Columbus, Miss.) had an article telling about her study of Southern culture over the years and of her pursuit of what she now calls "generational history." Mills is a native of Mississippi, having been born in Cleveland. She and her husband were editors of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly for a number of years. She is the author of the genealogist's style manual called Evidence! Citation and Analysis for the Family Historian as well as editor of Professional Genealogy. Her most recent book is a novel called Isle of Canes which is based upon her research of the people in the region of Louisiana called Cane River which was made famous by Lalita Tademy's novel. She has written numerous articles and books besides these. It also appears in the Hattiesburg American.
