Research Extract Forms repeat 86% of the things that should be written on Research Logs anyway. This is highly redundant. We would require a really good reason to justify such a redundant form on this page. It is hard to imagine a situation where filling out BOTH a research log and a Research Extract Form would be a good use of genealogical research time.

The 14% new material is whether the information is direct or indirect, primary or secondary. These could easily enough be noted on the copies of the material without requiring researchers to fill out what amounts to a duplicate research log.

Therefore, for simplicity's sake, I am moving this material to its own separate page outside the Principles of Family History Research pages. DiltsGD 22:41, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
