How to cite sources

"How to Cite Sources
by John Wylie

No memory is as clear as faded ink ? Author Unknown

Realtors have an axiom ? location, location, and location. The genealogical corollary to that is ? documentation, documentation, and documentation. Family group sheets, GEDCOM files and any other form used to share genealogical information should be as fully documented as formal manuscripts. Even those who have no intention of submitting their work to a journal or of publishing a book will swap information with "genealogy cousins." Thus, it is essential that the software you use to record your work handle source citations well."
