I just shared the following note with our esteemed Elizabeth Shown Mills, and wanted to share it with the EE community:


I've been fighting this thing with source citations for a long time now! I really, really want to get it right, as I write my family history narratives, which I am hard at work on right now! I've heard you speak on the subject, attended Dr. Tom Jones' Advanced Methods class at SLIG, read books, etc. But tonight I had an epiphany! I've got it! I'm using your guidelines from Evidence Explained, and I'm rolling through my source citations, correcting like crazy! I just attended Dr. Colletta's "Writing a Quality Family Narrative" class, and I really want to do a good job! Thank you for all you have done to make this happen!
