Many researchers do not know how to differentiate between direct and indirect evidence. Direct evidence is any evidence that provides a direct answer to your questions without any calculation on your part – whether the answer is correct or not. Indirect evidence is evidence that provides an answer but requires you to perform some sore of calculation to arrive at the answer, whether or not the answer is correct.
An example: You are looking for the birth date of John Davis who died on 14 Nov 1964. Your question:
"When was John Davis born?"
