I've been building my family tree as a hobby for some time and have recently been informed of the importance of "correctly" citing your sources for future generations and for my own reference.
However, I'm finding it to be a very steep learning curve so thought I'd reach out for help to ensure I get it
"right" now, rather than having to correct it further down the line.
I'm using a program called "Roots Magic" and while the templates are meant to follow EE, I didn't find they matched what was being taught in the Book for "citing" a UK birth certificate.
So I decided to use a Free Flow form and you can see my citation below. Is it correct?
Footnote: England, birth certificate (certified copy) for Paula June Whitehouse, born 2 Oct 1966; registered October quarter 1966, Birmingham District 9c/206, Birmingham Sub-district, Warwickshire; General Registry Office, Southport.
Short footnote: England, birth certificate (certified copy), Paula June Whitehouse, October quarter 1966, Birmingham District 9c/206.
Bibliography: England. Registrar General. Birth Certificates. General Registry Office, Southport.
Another clarification I could do with some help on is the difference between "Master Source" and "citation". As in "Roots Magic" the Footnote, Short Footnote & Bibliography was part of the master source section and then there's another section I can fill in called "citation details" (See screenshot for reference)
