Genealogy Source Citations Quick Reference Guide

The genealogy gods and goddesses (you all know who you are...) know how pitiful my source citation skills are - I need all the help I can get.

Thomas MacEntee composed a Quick Reference guide to Genealogy Source Citations back in April, posted it on Geneabloggers, and I just found it again on the Internet while looking for something else (isn't that always the way we find neat stuff?).

The Geneabloggers post is here, and the Quick Reference Guide itself is here in PDF format. The guide covers:

* basic concepts of source citations
* the do's and don'ts of using source citations
* components that comprise a citation
* popular citation styles
* bibliography generation websites
* how to code footnotes for blogs and websites
* helpful links
* recommended reads and items

Thank you, Thomas! A keeper.

Randy, what a great find! Thanks for sharing it with us. Thomas needs to get the laminated version for sale so I don't spill my coffee on it. Meanwhile, I printed it two-sided and placed it into a plastic sleeve to keep by my computer. Another copy went into my take everywhere notebook for reference.
