“Certification is about much, much, more than ‘writing up our findings.’ It’s about the quality of our research–not just our knowledge of what records to search, but our understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of everything we use. It’s about our ability to analyze a problem and devise an effective work plan. It’s about our ability to interpret each record in the context of its place and time. It’s about our ability to correlate information and resolve discrepancies. It’s about our ability to solve problems when obvious answers (direct evidence) do not exist or are demonstrably wrong. It’s about our judiciousness in deciding *when* a problem is resolved, when we have a reliable answer, and when we would mislead others by declaring a decision prematurely. The “writing” is simply how we communicate all this knowledge and skill we have accumulated.”
