Simplifying Genealogy Sources and Citations helps you bring order to the resources used in your family history research.
This Sassy Jane Guide helps you create simple and effective sources and citations, combining the best practices of historians and genealogists. Professional historians cite primary and secondary sources in their work, making their standards useful to consider in your own genealogy research.
Simplifying Genealogy Sources and Citations includes examples for census, parish records, books, websites, websites with static URLs, paper records with multiple pages, and the work of other genealogists.
We have all probably had the frustrating experience of asking a relative or a fellow researcher to supply sources and citations for their information and the unfortunate answer is that they “just know” or the information is “around” or “hard to get to.” With this Sassy Jane Guide, you will have confidence that your sources and citations preserve the results of your research efforts.
