Citation Issues

Hinshaw, William Wade (Unpublished Work)

William Wade Hinshaw created his great work of abstracts of Quaker records by compiling entries on index cards so they could subsequently be grouped by surname. After publishing his six volume work, he was working with additional records with the intent to publish additional volumes, perhaps, when he died and the work ended. Those index cards that were never published reside in a card catalog file at the Friends Library at Swarthmore College. Some time ago I made copies of several of those cards, but today I am at a bit of a loss as to how to cite them.


Let's say I'm writing a blog post for educational purposes. I want to teach someone how to access something on a webpage, and so I have taken screenshots of the relevant part of the webpage an added them to my post. In some cases I have further edited the picture with arrows or circles to make it clear what I am referring to. How do I cite this? 

Citations for Blogs

I have a blog and I would like to cite sources on it. While I understand that one would cite sources the same way as if it were a paper, I'm wondering what kinds of issues the change in medium creates. For example, if I provide a link to another website, do I need to cite the link, if I haven't used any information or quotes from that website in my blog post? Any searches I do for blog citations only shows me how to cite a blog, so more information on this topic would be appreciated.



Photographs found Online

I found some photographs of the church where my great-grandfather was baptized. The photographer has generously made them available through a Creative Commons license.

I'm struggling to write a citation that covers both photographs and webpages.

Here's what I have so far:

Dixon, David. "Emmanuel Church, The Parish Church of Newton-in-Makerfield." Geograph ( : accessed 20 September 2019).

Daughters Of Utah Pioneers and International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers

How would I cite a history from Daughters of Utah Pioneers museum and a history from International Society Daughters of Utah Pioneers using Evidence Explained Revised Third Edition? 

They sent me copies of multiple histories they have on my ancestors that I am citing in my ICAPGen accredidation project. 

Citing the Cover of a Genealogy Quarterly

I am having trouble coming up with an appropriate citation for the cover photograph and its description on the inside cover from a genealogy quarterly. I believe that I should be following the journal article print edition format, but am unsure since there is not necessarily an author or article title.

Danish Parish Registers Online


At the website of the Danish National Archives, digitizations of some parish registers are now available in two versions. I am trying to figure out how to direct readers to the specific online record used by me without including overly long waypoints for every single citation.

Here is an example of a long reference note:

Obtaining extant banking and insurance records

I realize this is slightly off topic, but thought I would go ahead and ask. EE has a whole chapter dedicated to Business & Institutional Records. But I always wondered how a researcher would even begin to get access to private banking or insurance records that are presumably still held by instructions? 

Citing a typeset of a transcription of a translation

This record has gone through a number of iterations all of which could have introduced errors. I want to be sure when I cite the marriage it that it is clear that this is three steps away from the original. I used EE 7.31 Typescripts of Registers as my guide. 

The record can be found on Ancestry here:

The beginning of the "book" can be found here:
