Help:How to Cite FamilySearch CollectionsEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Why should You Cite Your Sources?
It is recommended that you cite the sources of information added to your records. Citing sources will allow you to avoid duplicate searches later and share your sources with other researchers. A citation with specific details about the source document should allow yourself or others to easily find the source document at a later time.
A suggested format for citations created to document information found in FamilySearch Record Search is: Collection title, digital images, from FamilySearch Internet (www.familysearch.org: date accessed or downloaded), items of interest. Items of interest include: Name of the person mentioned in the document File, folder or jacket number Locality Record type Page number Line number Date of entry Digital identification number If the collection was digitized from microfilms owned by FamilySearch, add the following to the citation: citing “Title of microfilm collection”, microfilm. Genealogical Society of Utah, name of archive that housed the originals, location of originals archive.
