Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about creating reference note citations for your genealogical sources. In this fifth part of our revisiting the Research Like a Pro steps series, we discuss crafting citations the first time you look at a source and saving that in your research log (which we will discuss next week). Following your research plan, creating citations, and research logging all happen simultaneously. Tune in to hear more about the five elements of a source citations – who, what, when, where is, where in, and some common questions people have about them.

I enjoyed the discussion about creating source citations for untitled narratives and unpublished records. The introduction to layering was great too. Looking forward to listening to the layered citations podcast.
Thanks for listening! Those untitled records can be difficult to cite, but by answering the five questions, we can do it.
