Description

Ancestry.com is the largest and most widely used genealogy site on the Internet. As an Ancestry.com user yourself,
you've looked at databases with billions of names, so now you want to be sure you can get back to a specific record or
lead others to the same record; and you need to identify your sources, to verify and cross-check them for accuracy,
using the correct citations to Ancestry's online databases and images. Help is at hand with Elizabeth Mills's fabulous
QuickSheet, which provides rules and models for citing the myriad databases and images you use on Ancestry.com. With
this new QuickSheet, you'll know instantly how to cite databases that include census records, vital records, passenger
lists, city directories, and family trees; and how to cite images that include manuscripts, maps, newspapers, and online
books and articles. First published in 2009, the Quicksheet has now been completely revised to reflect changes and new
wrinkles at Ancestry.com. In QuickSheet: Citing Ancestry.com Databases & Images you'll find the standards you need for
the correct citation of Ancestry sources, as well as help in judging the reliability of those sources. For most
Ancestry.com sources, sample citations are shown here in three styles: Source List Entry, Full Reference Note, and Short
Reference Note, each showing you how to deal with author/creator, title, website, URL, date accessed, item type, source
of sources, and so forth. Arranged in tabular format under each of these headings, the sample citations are easy to
follow and can be applied to your specific needs in citing your sources. Convenient for desktop use at home or in the
library, the new QuickSheet, like its companion, QuickSheet: Citing Online Historical Resources Evidence! Style, is a
heavily laminated sheet, folded to form a standard 8.5" x 11" folder, and is designed for constant use.
