Person Source References

Description

The Person Source References resource defines a collection of source references attached to a person.

As of June 27, 2016 this resource is deprecated because source references are automatically included in the Person resource. Starting December 6, 2016, the consolidate-redundant-resources pending modification will be activated and this resource will redirect to the Person resource.
