I have quite a few Find A Grave Memorials available for people in my database. In many (probably most) cases, I have Ancestry.com cites to the index, but I'd like to add the citations to the individual memorials. I can create a new source for each individual, using the source citation provided by Find A Grave for each individual memorial, but I'd prefer creating one master "Find A Grave Memorial" citation, with details for each individual's memorial (like one would a page number from a printed master source book or a place location from a master source census record), using the details from the Find A Grave provided source citation for those details. I don't see this listed among the "canned" sources in RootsMagic.

Is there a convention which RootsMagic users (or genealogists in general) use or is it each researcher creating his or her own way to cite these? (I prefer using conventions whenever they are generally agreed upon.) Thanks in advance.

There are two Find A Grave users submitted source templates on this page - https://sites.google...e/rm4templates/


I think the one I use is #22. EE-FindAGrave.
