Theory Development & Historical Antecedents --- Generational Family Matrix Research

The central theoretical basis of genealogy lies in the process of familial reconstitution.
Beginning with a family the investigator uses certain principles and laws (the theory) to
posit a possible source of additional relevant information.  KEY  Through instrumentation
(the source) and experimentation (searching it out),  the researcher discovers an actual
source fitting the criteria posited.  By using the theory again the investigator is able to
establish the evidence as justifying an extension to the family and pedigree.  He [she]
--- is obligated to accept findings of scholars in anthropology, economics, geography,
psychology, sociology, demographics, and history.  Certainly he [she] should be well
versed in some of those related disciplines. - There is [also] the search for new data,
[with] the establishment of its relevance, the creation of hypotheses, and a proper
consideration for previous research and for the findings of related disciplines.
[Thus, the conclusion is made, that -- ] Genealogical research has four facets:
(1) heuristic; (2) knowledge of area, (3) research analysis, and (4) compilation.

Academic Globalization of "Genealogy Method"
CURRENT USE DEFINITION of: "genealogy method"
Method of investigative scholarship to establish valid
generational relationships connecting any specialty,
as used within or between all fields of knowledge.
JUSTIFICATION:  Genealogy Method procedures that
discover and record connections of kinship, descent
& marriage, can also be used to establish accurate
understanding in all knowledge system properties,
using diagrams, symbols and scholarly analysis.

Academic usage of "Genealogy Method" in real time,
within fields of research, vindicates the truthfulness
of conclusions, as shown by historical comparison;
 "genealogy method", or "genealogical perspective";
is a scientific method of looking to the past, by using a
"
reverse" process of economic projection methodology.
(Historical, computerized data sets extrapolated back in time)

"The key technical problem in much of economic analysis is the determination
of some unknown function."  "These constructions rely on Taylor's theorem, the
implicit function theorem, and bifurcation theory, and lead to the construction of
Taylor or Padé series, or other approximations of a simple form."  "These methods
are called perturbation, or asymptotic methods.  The basic idea of asymptotic methods
is to formulate a general problem, find a particular case which has a known solution,
and then use that particular case and its solution  as a starting point for computing
approximate solutions to 'nearby' problems.  These methods are widely used in
mathematical physics, particularly in quantum mechanics and general relativity
theory, with much success." . . . . . . . . . . . . . . "We take the view that in the
future  such theoretical analyses will be done by computer software,
and is an interesting new avenue of computational economics."

ACADEMIC GENEALOGY: Genealogy of academic principles or ideas in specialized
bodies of teaching, (within
dissertation or other educational supervisory relationships),
as presented in a formal pedagogy from teacher to student; showing thereby human
intellectual
pedigrees of unbroken lineage
succession.  Genealogy, categorized
in the broader term of discipline,
includes bailiwick, field, field of study, study,
subject, subject area and subject field
.  Academic genealogy relationships
in all education disciplines, are adjunct to the genealogy and worldwide
family history; Library of Congress classification: history auxiliary science.

Prosopographical Theory of Genealogy defined:
        Comprehensive evidence based
family & society studies worldwide,
        using the academic "genealogy method" procedure,
within a wide range
        of disciplines, professions and applied, formal, natural and social sciences;
        humanities, computer technology, religious studies, anthropology, languages,
        business and education practices, sociology, psychology, library and depository
        facilities, demography, Internet skills and databases, health sciences, geography,
        economics, cultural studies, law, history and social work.
           
       
This "genealogical perspective" is a scientific method of looking to the past,
        by using a "reverse" process of economic projection methodology; i.e.,
        [an absent or imagined person (prior to genealogical confirmation from primary
        source documentation) is figured forth -- the "face created" as the Greek suggests --
        in words, as if present (after the pedigree is established according to the current
        genealogical proof standard).]  In other words, extrapolating trends into the past,
        as a function of conditions, characteristics and data records, endogenous to
        current variables in family performance.  REF:
NGS | Mastering Genealogical Proof

       
The theory of genealogy is based upon the assertion that all mankind has natural
        and legal rights, as well as the word of God, concerning the origin of Man and of
        record keeping.  The United States Declaration of Independence  states:
        "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
        that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
        that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, -- . . .".

        "
Knowledge of and definite relationship to his genealogy is ... necessary
        for a child to build up his complete body image and world picture.  It is
        an inalienable and entitled right of every person. There is an urge, a call,
        in everybody to follow and fulfill the tradition of his family, race, nation,
        and the religious community into which he was born.  The loss of this tradition
        is a deprivation which may result in the stunting of emotional development . . . ".

  genealogy and antiquarianism in the 18th century; identity, `roots', and family /
  demographic sources; occupational cultures and family economies in the past;
  childhood, adoption and fostering; autobiography and family history;
  the middle-class family and its structures in the 19th and 20th centuries;
  clerical and aristocratic dynasties; and family history from the records of
  businesses, professions and universities.  An important feature of the course
  is that it also covers international family history and its global elements,
