Elizabeth Shown Mills is a historical researcher and writer who has spent her life studying American culture and the relationships between people — emotional as well as genetic. A popular lecturer, author of numerous works on generational history, and past president of the American Society of Genealogists, Elizabeth is the author, editor and translator of thirteen books and over 500 journal and magazine articles in genealogy, history, and sociology.

Aside from her reality-based historical novel, Isle of Canes — which reviewers have called a "masterpiece" and a cross between Roots and Gone with the Wind — Mills is best known for two works now considered essential references in the field of family history: Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace and Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers & Librarians. Elizabeth arranged a partnership to have Footnote.com be the exclusive distributor of the electronic version of Evidence Explained.
