QuickSheet: Citing Online African-American Historical Resources Evidence! Style, Elizabeth Shown Mills

2 QuickSheet: Citing Online African-American Historical Resources Evidence! Style
Elizabeth Shown Mills

Basic citation models given here help researchers evaluate the reliability of online historical sources by recording all relevant information about both the historical material itself and the website that provides the material.

In citing online historical sources Mrs. Mills offers two basic style formats:

**Source-list style, used in bibliographies, gives a short and general identification of a source.
**Reference-note style, used for footnotes and endnotes, adds specific details about particular information within the source.

With this basic template, the African-American QuickSheet provides models for citing common resources such as databases, image copies, transcripts, blogs, books, and articles, using the widely accepted citation principles established in the QuickSheet series. Arranged in tabular format, the sample citations are easy to follow and can be applied to your specific needs in citing your sources.

While it provides standards for citing online sources, this QuickSheet is, of course, tailored to the African-American experience, so source citation models bear on subjects such as slave manifests, slave narratives, Freedmenís Bureau records, and slave census schedules. This QuickSheet is a laminated four-sided sheet designed for heavy use.

Crafting a Personal Family History: A Guide Plus A Case Study of the Hinds Family in New York's Adirondack Mountains, Harold E Hinds, Jr

5 Crafting a Personal Family History: A Guide Plus A Case Study of the Hinds Family in New York's Adirondack Mountains
Harold E Hinds, Jr

Crafting a Personal Family History establishes the basic principles necessary to successfully research and document a person family history. In most cases only a fragmentary record of an ancestor's life will have survived, and those traces will tend to cluster around only a few topics. So it is in the Hinds case study presented. Analysis of those traces is essential: so analysis is made transparent in the text. Other approaches are briefly presented in an appendix. Praise for Crafting a Personal Family History: Harold Hinds, in this ground-breaking and valuable textbook, applies his unsurpassed scholarship and experience as an academic historian to the fledgling field of personal family history. Providing both theory and practical example, Hinds makes a significant contribution that seekers of ancestors will find not only helpful, but enlightening. He has demonstrated vividly and convincingly that exploiting oft-neglected local and regional materials and analyzing them diligently in light of the time and place of their creation, can reveal -- even when the forebears are unexceptional folk from Ireland -- an engaging, often surprising, sometimes shocking family saga well worth telling. John Philip Colletta, Ph.D., author of Only a Few Bones About the Author: Harold E. Hinds, Jr is Distinguished Research Professor of History at the University of Minnesota-Morris
