The Seaver Source Citation Saga Compendium

I've published so many blog posts about working with Source Citations, Genealogy Software and GEDCOM files over the past two months that I want to publish a Compendium of them here, in order of publication, and I'll try to keep it updated.

In these studies, I've worked with Family Tree Maker 16, Family Tree Maker 2011, Legacy Family Tree 7 and RootsMagic 4.  Each of these programs has Source Citation templates, and the last three offer both Free-form and Evidence! Explained Source Templates.

Here is the list:
