Sources & Citations Series – Your Own Citation, Guidance for Others

Sources & Citations SeriesWe are at the last of the Sources and Citations Series and I hope that you have found it useful and it has given you food for thought on your studies.

Whether you have a blog or website for your research others should cite your site as the place where they saw a photograph or article. Not everyone thinks of that, so to ease people into this concept, why not create a citation yourself, that other researchers can use?

This blog should be cited as Anglers Rest blog, Julie Goucher 2019 – site accessed and then the date, or at the very least a link, which is what I tend to do. My websites will be similar – reflecting each of my One-Name studies etc. My Butcher One-Name Study site shows the following copyright note

The Butcher One-Name study is the property of Julie Goucher. I have made numerous purchases of documents or copies of documents. I also have genealogical subscriptions that I have purchased so that I can develop the study further and add media to this site for illustration purposes and as evidences. Please always acknowledge the Butcher One-Name Study in your research.

My other sites show a similar copyright note and the date.

I hope you have found this series useful. I move on to a different series later this week.
