Does anyone use permalinks in citations? Most record images viewed online from FamilySearch have an associated permanent URL (the link that they include in their citations). Even Ancestry.com has relatively short URLs that will bring you to the exact image.
I really like the idea of using these links because there have been times when a client comes back for new research, and I can very quickly pull up relevant records.
I will still be recording all other relevant data in the citation, but the website URL will be just a bit longer than the data sources main URL (for example using https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VRZR-D38 instead of just www.familysearch.org). That way if the link ever breaks, the record can still be found.
I'm interested in hearing other's thoughts.
