|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?

This reference PDF uses some links based on a URL shortening service, http://tr.im. They seem to have gone out of business (see Mashable, http://mashable.com/2009/08/09/trim-shuts-down/), so the links don't work. This makes the reference sheet somewhat less usable.ReplyDelete
Hi Kate, Thanks for letting us know that ... I obviously didn't check the links ... and, I suggest that you and others just search for those relevant items and then mark up a copy with more current information. Appreciate your bringing this to our attention. Diane :-)ReplyDelete
