I have reviewed the examples of Citing Online Historical Resources, 2nd ed (2017), as well as Evidence Explained, 3rd ed. Kindle for online collections. I also noted your recent concise explanation related to a museum collection.
In addition the Hagley Museum has expressed a preferred citation:
[Description and dates], Hagley ID, Box/folder number, E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company records (Accession 0500.I), Manuscripts and Archives Department, Hagley Museum and Library, Wilmington, DE 19807
My aim is to provide a reference note to document the use of an alias by one of my ancestors.
The full link to the PDF which I downloaded is
The PDF document’s name is islandora2426610.pdf, and I did not see a place where that needed to be referenced.
The citation I created, based upon the information provided, is:
Day Book, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, 1800-1813 (Wilmington, Delaware: E.I. DuPont Nemours & Co., 1813) pages 54 and 107; PDF download at Manuscripts and Archives Dept, Hagley Museum and Library, (https://digital.hagley.org/500_I_Volume_849_Day_Book_1800_1813 : accessed 20 October 2020), p. 54 (image 82) and p. 107(image 157), name ”Jean Blanchet,” image 157 documents Jean Blanchet’s use of the alias, “John White.”
Also, I noted that the Dupont name did not appear on the PDF which I downloaded. The only reason, I kept it as it was part of the museum's title for the book.
I would appreciate any comments or suggestions for improvement.
