Citing Your Sources

Class description: Citing your sources is very important – even if you are only a casual genealogist.  A source is the record from which we get information.  A citation is how we connect a source (evidence) to our conclusion (verdict).  Citing sources also allows other researchers to confidently use the information we’ve collected.  And lets face it, after you gather 500 ancestors in your tree it is impossible to remember how you determined that Great Great Aunt Ruby’s middle name was, in fact, Arabella, if you didn’t site the source of that information.  This class will discuss what you need to know about citing your sources.

Instructor biography: Cindy Rodgers has been a hobby genealogist for over 20 years and is a volunteer and past president of The Fenton History Center.
