I am going back through my previous collection of citations and trying to make them more in the EE style. I think I am getting the hang of layered citations and the velcro principle.
My current struggle is a database with images collection in FamilySearch. The ending waypoints take you to baptism records. In the resulting images there can be several distinct books. The spine of the books have been filmed followed by the first leaves of the book. In some of the books it appears that amongst the first leaves, one page appears to be more of a title page. In other books, it appears to be more of a note about the book.
As an example, the beginning of book 4 begins here with an image of the outside covers (which are book covered) and the spine.
The following imaging is the inside cover of the book with beautiful calligraphy and drawings.
My citation for one entry is as below.
Los Cinco Señores (Santander Jimenez, Tamaulipas, Mexico), “[Book] 4, I 1819 al X– 1830.–“, “Libro en que se asientan las partidas de Baptîsmos y se hacen en esta Parroquia de la Villa desde 1o Enero de 1819”, p26, [acta] 71, “Maria Luisa" Gonzalez, 15 Dec 1820; accessed as "México, Tamaulipas, registros parroquiales, 1703-1964," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9396-XKDT-5 : accessed 4 Jan 2022), Santander Jiménez > Los Cinco Señores > Bautismos 1819-1846 > image 31 of 497; paróquias Católicas, Tamaulipas (Catholic Church parishes, Tamaulipas).
Looking at EE 7.18, I was following the example reference for St. Libory. I followed the path to that collection and noted that the title used in the citation was on the outside cover.
What I struggle with is whether to include what is on the spine in quotes or not? Also, should I include what is on the inside cover as a title also in quotes? Should I include the words Church or Parish after Los Cinco Señores in Spanish or English? Is putting the word "Book" in square brackets appropriate since that doesn't appear on the spine? I have determined that the Roman numerals in front of the years refer to the month of the year referenced.
Books 2 thru 4 are similar having the same spine labeling and decorative inside cover. But, book 5 and 6 are different. The same spine label but the inside cover appears to be more of a note about what's in the book rather than a title.
I appreciate any feedback before I dive into a several 100 similar records all requiring new citations.
