Genealogy Source Citations Quick Reference

Side one of the 2-page Genealogy Source Citations Quick Reference


Citing our sources can be so important and yet challenges so many of us!

I really like the simple 2-page Genealogy Source Citations Quick Reference that Thomas MacEntee has created and which is freely available via his Geneabloggers website.

He has captured the essence of what citations are all about without making it all seem too complicated or intimidating!

What are your favorite tools for making sure that your citations are accurate and provide sufficient details that those who follow you can re-create your research trail?
