I have a book (and I have seen other examples) that uses detailed and comprehensive endnotes in the style suggested by EE, but does not include a bibliography or source list.
Before seeing this I had wondered about this in the sense that since the endnotes already include robust and detailed information concerning my sources, is a bibliography even needed?
I would be appreciative if EE could comment on this question.
1) Is a bibliography merely a matter of convenience to a reviewer or reader or should it always be considered a mandatory component of works of genealogy?
2) Is there a guideline or rules that define when a bibliography is optional or mandatory?
3) As with so many other related issues, does the real answer to this question come down to a matter of style?
Thank you so very much, in advance, for your reply.
