Citations are not something I complete when I’m at the Family History Library. I know that I should, but I don’t. However, I have completed enough citations that I know what I need to craft one that is correct (or reasonably correct). Collecting that information is crucial as the research is being done.
I looked to Evidence Explained for some guidance in completing the citation for this emigration document for Bertus Grass from Ostfriesland, Germany, in the 1870s.
Ostfriesland, Hannover, Auswanderungskonsenses [Citizenship renunciations], 1868-1913 G, No. 1955 [upper left], p. 59 [stamped upper right], Bertus Grass; Staatsarchiv [State Archives], Aurich, Germany; FHL microfilm 1257600.
I was glad that I had included the roll number as a part of the file name–there were two rolls of film that included the letter G.
Theoretically I should create my citations as I’m researching at the library. Theoretically.
