One of my goals this year is to become more comfortable with writing citations. Citations for some documents like deeds or online census records are ones that I create fairly frequently. There are always those more unique documents that come my way once in a blue moon.
The Edwards Family Bible that I recently acquired is one example. I will have to carefully read the citation formula as presented in Evidence Explained by Elizabeth Shown Mills. I'm going to give it a whirl here on my blog so you can see what it looks like. If I need to tweak it a bit let me know.
Explanations for citing information from a Family Bible can be found on pages 140-141 of Evidence Explained.
Jacob Sanders Glen Edwards, Family Bible Records, 1848-1908, The Holy Bible (Philadelphia: William W. Harding, 1867), "Marriages, Births and Deaths", Privately held by Marian Edwards Pierre-Louis, [Address for private use,] Massachusetts, 2011. [Bible was a gift of a gentleman from Long Island who held it his possession for the previous 30 years. Originally a gift to J.S.G. Edwards from his mother in 1868. Entries with the exception of two fall after the publication date and seem to be individually written as they happened.]
