"Source Citation" or "Original Data" when both appear equivalent?
I realize that this may appear to be a trivial question. However; if there is a proper one to use, I'd like to know and to understand why.
When constructing a citation for records from a Drouin Collection, hosted on Ancestry, I found the "Source Citation" and "Original Data" provide identical information in a different order. Consequently, neither would appear to be "more correct". That said; I tend to favour the "Original Data" format because it reminds me more of the format of a citation to a publication (author first).
In such cases, is there really a correct one to use or is it just personal preference?
Here are the two "options".
Source Citation: Institut Généalogique Drouin; Montreal, Quebec, Canada; Drouin Collection; Author: Gabriel Drouin, comp.
Original Data: Gabriel Drouin, comp. Drouin Collection. Montreal, Quebec, Canada: Institut Généalogique Drouin.
