it's as easy or as hard as you want it to be.
Here is the easy method. First can I explain the logic in entering sources. There are two parts to a source, the source itself (this can be a repository for census data, birth/death/marriage certificates or even a book or newspaper) and secondly the source details ie. the information that you want to save.
Assuming you have added a fact for the birth/death etc highlight this and click sources then add a new source. If you then go to add source in RM and scan down to Vital Records you will see an entry (Vital Records, local, certificates.) Use this and when you click this entry you will be confronted with a two part entry, Master Source and Source Details. Completion of this is I find very easy and you can scan your copy of the Birth cert and attach it to the Source details part of the record. This can be done by clicking the media tab and changing the box labeled source and details to details only before attaching the scan and saving.
Hope this all makes sence and good luck
