on the website of my company you can find a list of papers on the subject of crystal measurement techniques.
The actual standard procedure for crystal measurement is by using modern network analyzers with error correction, as given in the IEC publication 60444-5.
A description of the method and its variants can be found in my 2012 paper listed on the mentioned website.

I have some web pages about crystals and testing them:
http://www.prc68.com/I/CrystalImpedanceMeters.html - Crystal Impedance Meters (Saunders 150) http://www.prc68.com/I/Xtal.shtml#TE - Crystals in general & Test Equipment (see Trivia below) http://www.prc68.com/I/Xam.html - Crystal Activity Meters http://www.prc68.com/I/Xec.shtml - Equivalent Circuit http://www.prc68.com/I/4395A.shtml#ZT - The Z transform method is also used in commercial crystal test sets like the HP E4915, E4916, E5100.
Trivia: The HP 4194 may be the only instrument that can really characterize watch crystals ( 32768 Hz) for impedance which is in the meg Ohms range. Some of the HP network analyzers can fit swept frequency data into an equivalent crystal equivalent circuit.
