I am struggling with the citation for an indexed item at Ancestry, that was indexed together with JewishGen, I think I should have three layers:
- Cite what you see
- Cite the source of what you see
- Cite where your source may have found the information
I came up with this:
“Philadelphia Bank Immigrant Passage Records, 1890-1949,” Blitzstein Bank, book 3, p125, Peirel Fainkuchen; indexed in Ancestry (https://search.ancestry.com : accessed 31 Mar 2019”); citing “Ticket purchase books and index, 1899-1930,” Blitzstein Steamship Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; data provided in partnership with JewishGen, who in turn lists the digital images as housed at Temple University.
I would prefer not to have discursive notes and I also don't want to cite the original image to be found at Temple U. I just want to have a clean citation for the index, for what I found at Ancestry.
For your reference, the Ancestry link is:
Your feedback would be welcome.
