In another great QuickSheet from Elizabeth Mills, we get Citing Ancestry.com Databases & Images.
This laminated, four-page quick reference gives the researcher an easy guide to citing sources as found on Ancestry and other websites. Based on her books Evidence!: Citation & Analysis for the Family Historian and Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, Mills provides an easy to follow reference to citing sources obtained through computer driven databases, using Ancestry as an example. The QuickSheet begins with a Basic Principles section and a Basic Template to help get the researcher started.
The remainder of the guide provides Models, or examples, for Common Record Types. For each model or source type there are three entries organized in columns for easy reading. The three entry options are Source List Entry, Full Reference Note, and Subsequent Reference Note.
