Re: sourcing info from Chris
It sounds like you do as much as you can to source your info. I try to do
the same. Sometimes there is no copyright info available so I will write all I
can about the source. The main thing I feel is important is to let others know
where you got the info. Then at least they can go there too if needed to
check it out or even find others of the similar name or place.
Sometimes there is not enough to "prove" the info and this also I will note
so the reader can know that it is as close to proof as I have available
(example: Aunt Susie Smith daughter of Alvin and Susanna Smith, told me...." This way
if the family has more info or documents to back me up, they can let me know
so I can correct or back up my research.
It would be interesting to hear how others address this difficult and
sometimes very trying subject.
