The second edition of EE gives several examples for citing FamilySearch images, see pages, 53, 469, 500-01 and 598-99. It seems that FamilySearch has finally settled on the name FamilySearch. In the examples on 500-01 the phrase "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" was added before the title of the website. The example on p 598-99 omits the above phrase. I am curious as to the reasoning behind adding the "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints".
The current site says, "a service provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints". When citing Ancestry.com, the company name isn't included in the citation (Ancestry.com Operations, Inc.) Is it necessary to include The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the citation?
I am working on citations from the Minnesota, County Marriages, 1860-1949 database and images. When you enter a name to search you receive several "links" to images. Two are for the groom and bride indexes and one is to the book the marriage is recorded in. When you click on the links some basic information is given including the FHL microfilm no. Since I want to cite the record and not the index which is a different microfilm no, (note the index pages use the "marriage" date as 7 November 1896 which is actually a license date), this is what I have come up with:
"Minnesota, County Marriages, 1860-1949," database & digital image, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org : accessed 24 December 2011), entry for Hubert Dreissen & Catherine Born, married 10 November 1896, Carver County marriages vol. H, p. 195. no. 1946; citing FHL microfilm 1,434,898
The page number is available on the image. The volume number is available on the index pages or from looking up the film number. FamilySearch seems to be grouping images by film number in this case the film is a continuation from a previous film. Is it necessary to include where the volume no. came from? Does the word citing need to be included as the images are a digital reproduction of the microfilm?
