I am trying to learn how to use sources in Roots Magic. I have a database that was converted from another program. It has various sources that look like duplicates in the Source List, including interviews of a given person. These interviews could have been on different dates, and I made a separate source for each separate interview. An "interview" may just be a brief conversation. There may be several of those over the years.
Question: For new interviews that I record, should I have just ONE Interview source for a given person, and then put the specific date for THIS interview in the CITATION, or should there be a different source (with date) for each interview/conversation?
If I did the later, then the date would have to be part of the name I give it. There is no field for date in the yellow area (master source) of the source screen, only in the green area (source details), which will go with the individual citation that I am on at the moment. If I did the former, I guess there is a way to copy a citation (with date) to a new instance of the citation to use somewhere else in the file.
On Source details (in green): I assume these are actually details for THIS citation (not the master source). It lets me fill in the citation details (which it confusingly calls source details) at the time I create the master source. The details will not go with the general source. Do I have all that right?
