Agreed! But, then, no one compels family historians to be certified, right?
<g> And no one is compelled to submit to any journal. But, given that this
is a professional forum, we're back to a basic professional issue: If one
seeks certification in their chosen field, then they have to produce work
that meets the standards and requirements of the certification exam. In
fact, even among "family historians," those who want to be published in a
journal or magazine --or in the LDS databases that you mentioned-- have to
meet the style and standards of the forum they've chosen.

I'm going to address this issue separately (under the heading "client
reports") because it's one that has been raised in several messages by
various members of this list and has never really been addressed.
