I do not know if there is a specialized meaning relative
to genealogy, but my American Heritage Dictionary indicates:
"Thus: so. Used in written texts to indicate that a
surprising or paradoxical word, phrase, or fact is not a
mistake and is to be read as it stands."
Might I be so bold as to suggest that people attempting
genealogy research make an attempt to purchase a dictionary,
almanac, etc. as well as an introductory genealogy book or
two. Or if one does not want to purchase the latter, check
one out from your local library.
There are likely some online dictionaries and almanacs
as well, if one does not already own some simple reference
books to use at home. I bet if someone went to "Google" and
typed in Dictionary or Almanac, they would turn up some
standard reference sources.
