Looking to cite an online birth register that appears that it was orginaly a GSU microfilm of an original marriage register. I'm scratching my head on citing this and wondering if I should cite the database or the catalog record.
When I did the initial search on FS it was part of a database "Pennsylvania Births and Christenings, 1709-1950" but the record came from a set of images from which I found this information:
Catalog Record: Pennsylvania Births and Christenings, 1709-1950
Film/Digital Note: Birth Register, 1893-1906
There is no citation for reference so I looked at the microfilm header:
Locality of Record: Prothonotary, Wayne County Court House, Honesdale, PA
Microfilmed for Genealogical Society of Salt Lake City Utah
Filmed at Honesdale, PA
6 Feb. 1973
Title: Register of Births
The title and volume is in line with the first scanned image of the original register book, but the date range was added.
Since I see the catalog information seems to be more specific than the database and I can search from it I decided to use that, but I am finding this to be a particularly frustrating record to cite. This is what I have so far:
"Birth register, 1893-1906"; delayed birth records, 1870-1906", digital images, FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-89KN-Y57?i=160 : accessed 7 March 2020) image 161 and 162, entry for Grant Sherwood, 12 July 1902, FHL Microfilm 007,621,703, roll, 2; Microfilm images the Wayne County, Pennsylvania, "Register of Births", vol. 1, unpaginated, for "Grant Sherwood," Prothonotary, Wayne County Court House, Honesdale, PA.
I'd appreciate any feedback to let me know if I am on the right track.
