Should i name my records with the name of the person in the title of the source, or just put the persons name in the citation, or both?

Pick up a copy of Elizabeth Shown Mills’ book “Evidence Explained.” It is a hefty volume that explains everything you need to know on the correct way to cite your sources.

At times it can get a bit over-the-top, but there are sections of Quick Sheets before each chapter with good real-life examples that you can use as templates.

If you start by correctly citing your sources you are going to be a step ahead in your research.

There are several editions of the book out. You can probably buy an older version through Amazon or cheaper than the most recent one and probably won’t be missing much. I am still using the original version I bought when it first came out.
