I have images of notarial documents from the Netherlands. These are land records, hand written in the 19th century and 2-8 pages in length. I don't speak or read Dutch. I engaged a professional genealogist to translate them. He suggested that he abstract them first to save money and if required later provide a full translation. The question is how to cite the document and abstract.
Do I put the author of the abstract at the beginning of the citation? Or do I place the abstract information at the end of the citation using "citing". Or some other approach to this citation?
