I have lots of Birth Indexes. But I'm unsure of how to cite them. I'm trying to create a template for birth indexes, but do not know how to go about it? 


Here is an example, that maybe someone could give me some instruction with.


Birth Index example:


First name(s) ELLEN
Last name COBURN
Birth year 1889
Birth quarter 2
Registration month -
Mother's last name -
District SALFORD
County Lancashire
Country England
Volume 8D
Page 20
Record set England & Wales births 1837-2006
Category Birth, Marriage & Death (Parish Registers)
Record collection Births & baptisms
Collections from United Kingdom
Thank you 

Only the rich never have to seek out their relatives. Proverb.

Try the GRO template. Even though these are old, they work for me.

I've also made a master source for the Free BMD website.
