Saturday Night Genealogy Fun on Sunday Night!

On Saturday Randy Seaver posted Saturday Night Genealogy Fun at his Genea-Musings blog.  Randy's mission was as follows:        1)  Have you done a good job of citing your sources in your genealogy management program or online family tree?  How are you doing?  How many source citations do you have, and how many people are in your tree?  What is the sources to persons ratio?        2)  Which master source (e.g., 1900 U.S. census, Find A Grave, specific book, etc.) do you have the most citations for?  How many?  How did you figure this out?        3)  Tell us in your own blog post, in comments to this post, or on Facebook or Google+ in a post.  Be sure to leave a comment with a link to your post on this blog post.

I left the fields for author last name, author given name, author suffix, date and agency/creator blank to get the results that I wanted. Click save and move to the detail section. In the item of interest field I put the name of the Member Tree in quotation marks, family tree by member name, profile for with birth and death information in parenthesis. My citation now look like: Footnote/Endnote Citation: "Public Member Tree," database, ( : accessed 6 Apr 2014), "davis /ri
