Source citations are a vital element in allowing us and our readers to 1) relocate a source, if needed and 2) evaluate the quality and likely reliability of our information. Few genealogists start out understanding, let alone writing, appropriate source citations to support their research, and in the long-term most seriously regret this failure. This class will be a combined lecture and workshop on how to write source citations. Included will be:
- What is a source citation
- The Gold Standard of source citations - Evidence Explained
- What elements make up a good source citation
- How to order the elements of a source citation
- How to cite sources in your writing
