Overcomer mandisa. Simple Citations. Why was Simple Citations created?

Simple Citations

Simple Citations was created because none of the software applications for maintaining family history data has ever incorporated (or developed) a standardized, simple-to-use, method to cite genealogical data in a consistent manner. Indeed, citing sources has always been a nightmare. Part of the reason for this is that the first software application to receive widespread use was Personal Ancestral File (PAF) which advocated the use of GEnealogical Data COMmunication (GEDCOM) as means to share genealogical data between computer programs.

Unfortunately, GEDCOM became the de facto standard despite the fact that it was so poorly designed. NoodleTools. RefWorks. APA Style. Citing Electronic Information in History Papers.

Ancestry Wiki: Specific Databases & Indexes

Meyerink, MLS, AG, FUGA in The Source: A Guidebook to American Genealogy The following list of specific databases and indexes is organized alphabetically. Some groups of small, related databases or indexes are grouped together by subject. One important index to biographical information in local histories is the American Biographical Index (ABI). The selection of sources in ABI is quite broad, geographically and by scope. The index is actually a tool to access the same company’s American Biographical Archives, which is a microfiche collection of the indexed biographical sketches. The largest and most comprehensive index to published, book-length family histories is Fremont Rider’s American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI). US National Archives Wiki.

250+ Killer Digital Libraries and Archives

Each one has something to offer to researchers, students, and teachers. This list contains over 250 libraries and archives that focus mainly on localized, regional, and U.S. history, but it also includes larger collections, eText and eBook repositories, and a short list of directories to help you continue your research efforts. death The sites listed here are mainly open access, which means that the digital formats are viewable and usable by the general public. So, such sites as the Connecticut Digital Library (iCONN) are not listed, as they operate on the premise that the user has a Connecticut library card in his or her possession.
