Hi, 

I want to cite a copy of my mother's birth certificate. I am using the "Vital Records (state, certificates)" source template. It is asking me for the repository and its location. How would I fill out that information if I got the copy from her personally and not from a county clerk's office?

 

Thanks.

You can Create a Repository and call it whatever you want, e.g. "Mother's Personal Papers", "Our Family Records", or whatever you want to call it. Or you could leave Repository blank. It's not mandatory, but is intended to show where the document referred to can be found if you/anyone needs to find it again in the future.

Okay, thank you.
