A while back, years in fact, I found a citation template for WordPerfect that applied the formats suggested in Elizabeth Shown Mills' book. Alas, now that I understand it, I can no long find the little devil. Has anyone here seen it (or better, downloaded it)? I'd like to see if there isn't a way to obtain it again and apply a programming language to assist in its implementation. Thanks, Happy Dae. http://www.ShoeStringGenealogy.com Hi Mark!

This seems like such a basic thing! I found that writing up family history, be it cataloguing artifacts, explaining lineages, or whatever -- and especially as I generally aim towards the print version -- was much more easily accomplished using LaTeX. But I also want online collaboration, and multimedia support (not, of course, for the print version), and so these days I use MediaWiki. With its 'Cite' extension, it gives me everything that I want in terms of source citations, and such flexibility that I can do things just as I would wish. Of course, this doesn't take into account the desire of many family researchers to share their information in a machine readable way. But I've never yet found the need for that...

Even if a transcriber "source" only included an automatic date of the addition & last known edit it might be of help when the rest of the exchanged info was being evaluated out of context, as it were.
