Citing FamilySearch Historical Collections

When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records.

A suggested format for keeping track of records that you have searched is found in the wiki article Help:How to Cite FamilySearch Collections.

Citation Example for a Record Found in a Historical Record Collection

General template:

“[Title of collection],” [index and images, images or index], FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/: accessed [date collection accessed]),[page number equivalent, including name of principals and date of event]; citing [Creator, Jurisdiction, or Institution][ (Optional location)], [Name or title of series, volume, or record type – archival title], [further record identification when needed, including FHL microfilm number], [Archive name], [Location of archive].

Notes: Use the PAL if available, where none exists, use http://familysearch.org . as listed above Words like born, died or married may be used prior to the date of the event.

A partial citation can be found on the bottom of the page for indexed collections, including a PAL, (persistent URL), which is preferable to the URL. I recommend that you copy this citation and add the missing data, which usually includes the archive. You might also need to reformat it a little. Example for a Browsed Collection:

“Argentina, Buenos Aires, Catholic Church Records, 1635-1981,” images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org: accessed 28 February, 2012), La Plata > San Ponciano > Matrimonios 1884-1886 > image 71 of 389 images, Artemio Avendano and Clemtina Peralta, 1884; citing Parroquia de San Ponciano en la Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Matrimonios. San Ponciano, La Plata, Buenos Aires. When looking at the image the pal appears in the address field at the top of the screen for the image. An example is: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-19126-29728-56?cc=1879925&wc=14423216 This is the image that you want to link to, if possible. If you can’t link to it successfully, use familysearch.org as shown above. Example for a Legacy Collection: "Caribbean Deaths and Burials 1790-1906," index, FamilySearch (http://familysearch.org: accessed 17 March 2011), John Edward Jones, 26 Nov 1865; citing Burial Records, FHL microfilm 1,223,999; Index entries derived from digital copies of original and compiled records, Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah. When the citation has been replaced with a citation specific to the collection being described, the heading should be changed to “Citation Example for a Record Found in This Collection” in Heading style 3.

When the article is a stub (has three or more empty sections), please add the following template in Wikitext.
