My question(s) are really not new. However, I need some clarification, for myself. I am on the final (hopefully) edit of a descedancy lineage. Sigh! I began from the beginning this morning and lo and behold I am sooo confused, again, about citations with layers, especially digital images within databases at Ancestry and source of source issues. I wrote these citations months ago. Now I am second guessing what I have done.
Ancestry is adding imaged documents at such a fast pace, from so many types of sources, from all over the world, it really gets confusing for me. So here are three citations troubling me. Two cite images from registers and the third is an database citation:
Archives of Ontario (Canada), “Ontario, Canada, Marriages, 1801-1928,” database and images, Ancestry
(http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 25 January 2016), entry for Joseph Powell and Mary Ann Cutt, 11 December 1848 marriage; citing Ottawa District Marriage Registers, vol. 19: 73; MS248, Reel 3; Archives of Ontario, Toronto.
This is an image of a page from the civil marriage register. I am second guessing myself. Should it be instead:
Ottawa (Canada), Ottawa District Marriage Registers, vol. 19: 73, entry for Joseph Powell and Mary Ann Cutt, 11 December 1848; MS248, Reel 3; Archives of Ontario, Toronto; accessed through "Ontario Canada Marriages, 1801-1928, database and images, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 25 January 2016).
Church of England (Moreton-in-Marsh Parish, Gloucestershire County), “Register of Baptisms in the Parish of Moreton-in-Marsh in the County of Gloucester, 1813-1832,” p. 7, Joseph Powell, 15 May 1814 baptism, digital images, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com : accessed 25 January 2016); citing P221/1/3; Gloucestershire Anglican Parish Registers; Gloucestershire Archives, Gloucester.
This is also an image from the register. Should I do the same treatment as above or is this correct?
Ida Reed, transcriber, “Wesleyan Methodist Baptismal Registers, 1828-1910,” database, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com: accessed 15 March 2012), entry for James Pearce Powell, 11 May 1851 birth; citing Wesleyan Methodist Church in Canada Baptismal registers, vol. 1, p. 555; United Church of Canada Archives, Toronto, Canada.
Ida Reed published this transcription. It is really an index. So Even though it is in a database should I add publication details if I can locate them. And, is this considered a manuscript?
