ViewFinder - Home Family History UK - Free UK Genealogy Genealogy Citation Guides The rapid growth of the Internet has outstripped the pace at which citation standards have been revised to include Internet sources. So, the purpose of this page is to serve as a guideline, if preliminary, to citing genealogically related material found on the Internet. For the most part, the citation examples below are modeled after traditional citation styles. Some Helpful General Guidelines: Typically, a modern word processor program will add a hyperlink automatically to a URL once you type it into the document. Web pages are often transient in nature and material can be published and taken down, removed or edited. Printer software can also be set to print the URL and date of printing at the bottom or top of each page. If you are an Internet author, publisher or web developer, consider placing a full bibliographic citation reference at the bottom of your page to make it easier for individuals quoting your material or using it in their research to properly cite it.
