Citation Issues

1900 Census of Norway at Ancestry

I have not been able to any examples of citing the Norwegian census record for 1900. I think I have a good format but cannot find translations for some of the items I see in the image. Ancestry translates Taellingskreds to Enumeration District, but I can't find any verification translating that word. The word I seem to be struggling with is "brugs." Does anyone here know what that translates to?

Using Family Tree Maker, this seems to be this best format I can get:

Citing Ships Manifests ... A citation style question

Dear Editor;

I've finally started to get a fair amount of my records cited, transcribed and filed. I have recently been reviewing my citations of ship's manifests, because (hopefully) I've learned a bit since I did them. 

In doing some of my recent citations, I've noticed the use of citation statements like "; imaging ...." This form was utilized on the forums, but I don't see it when searching in the EE book (3rd ed.) I believe the instance I remember was in imaged books of the Scottish Calendar of Confirmations.

Images of collections of register pages from FHL microfilm preservation copies

Dear Editor;

On 2 February 2002, I ordered images of 4 statutory register certificates; one for a marriage and 3 for births. As was the routine at the time, the correct references for ordering the images was determined by searching the online International Genealogical Index (IGI) and submitting an order form to the "Family & Church History MAIL SERVICES". All of the images came from FHL fiche 6,035,516 (see attached order form image).

It's complicated

I've been all through the EE book and I can't figure out how to cite the following book.  

It was originally printed in 1948 in Wilton, Conn and the name of the publisher was not included.  The copy of the book I have is from the Library of Congress in microform format.  Using the Quick Check Models, I can't decide whether to use Book: Reprint or Image Copies Microfilm Publication.  I've uploaded a description of the book from the Library of Congress Catalog.  

Citing court records of Scottish "Wills and Testaments"

Dear Editor;

I note that EE sec. 9.56 (3rd ed.) gives examples for Scottish birth records, which gives some insight into how one might address citing other ScotlandsPeople records. I'm interested in how it could be adapted to citing the "Wills and Testaments" available on that site, since the noted citation format is far shorter than what I've been using.

Citing Hathi Trust Digital Library

Help!  I've been all through Evidence Explained and I can't make up my mind how to cite the following book in the Hathi Trust Digital Library.  Which citation model do I need to use?

Maryland records, colonial, revolutionary, county and church, from original sources, by Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh.  The chapter title is Tombstone inscriptions from the original church yard of All Saints Parish, Frederick, Maryland, page 265.


Abbreviations in Citations

Dear Editor;

I'm familiar with EE 3rd ed. section, "2.56 Abbreviations, Standard." I note that there are some abbreviations that I've seen used in citations and which are not addressed. I understand that your list cannot show all the ones we may need. Is there a generally accepted reference for abbreviations, which might provide additional accepted ones?

Citing FamilySearch Databases vs Catalogs/Collections

Dear Editor,

Hopefully my query falls within the scope of this forum! I'm struggling to understand and differentiate between the various 'collections' at FamilySearch in order to craft an accurate citation...

Take the following image (leaving aside the issue of persistent URLs):

Citing Announcements from sites like

Dear Editor;

I've tried to follow the lead of the example for, "Newspaper Articles (Online Images)," p. 808, 3rd ed., Evidence Explained.

However; I have some questions about citing the situation in which there is no author, an inadequate title and no parent collection.

Here is my attempt at citing such a case:
