A source summary chart used in genealogy research is another chart that sounds just like its title. A source summary is a chart that you would fill out that helps you find the information you have on a particular family member very quickly. You would refer to this chart when you need to find out where you found the information about that family. You will want a separate source summary chart for each individual family you are researching.
