#98136 Source/Citations for photos from Public Family Trees on Ancestry.com

Posted by andyho on 09 September 2020 - 05:03 PM in Discussion

For guidance on this subject, you might consult the QuickSheet "Citing Ancestry Databases & Images."  This four-page laminated publication, by Elizabeth Shown Mills, is available for $12.19 at Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0806320966/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_N2vwFbWR73W08

Page 3, under the header "Family Trees," describes how to cite "Personal data, noting source or lack of it," and "Photos or documents" from member family trees at Ancestry. I use this publication all the time as a quick guide to citing sources at Ancestry.

 

Another excellent reference, also by Elizabeth Shown Mills, is Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts too Cyberspace.
