Hi, all. I questioned someone about her citation, and she pointed me to page 389/90 in EE's 3rd edition. The problem I had with her citation is that she only cited the FHL film and not the original record. Here's what EE says under "Citing the Record Office" in the last sentence: "In your First Reference Note, you do not have to cite the original record office, because you did not actually use the original records, although many researchers do prefer to include it."
I thought we always need to get to the original record in our citation - both so that we can better understand the record and find it again, and so that others can better understand the record and find it. But, is this not saying that it is OK to "just" cist the FHL film?
P.S. It does say that you need to cite the record in your Source List.
