Newby Question ->Conversion To EE, Examples of Census, Birth, Marriage, Death and FindAGrave

I have been doing genealogy for 20+ years and pretty much relied on the citations created by various software products (ancestry, MyHeritage, citation machine, etc...).  I am very much interested in making a change to a more consistent, descriptive and formalized citation style and have chosen EE.  I am struggling with this though as I want to convert over all my existing citations which I know will be lots of work, but I think the time is worth it.

Starting out here I am struggling with my genealogy software (Legacy 9), which is most compliant with the EE styles.  I say mostly, as it leaves elements out that are defined seem to be consistently included in the standard.  I am sure there are Legacy users in the group.  I am curious and would very much like to see examples of your citations.  Would you be will to share some of your citations from Other Reports->Source Citations with Master Sources and All Citations to each one and just Master Sources and Citation Summary Counts.  Please set the Options tab to List Style Format..

I am especially interested in your Census citations as well as birth, death and marriage.  Also how do you site Find a grave citations?  Just want to see how other people are doing this and doing it effectively.  I am also curious if you are using Source Writer or just Freestyle citations?

ThirtyOhSix, at this site we don't deal with specific software. Do you belong to the Legacy User Group's Facebook page? With nearly 20,000 members, a posting there should generate excellent help. The link is

I know, I have posted there and have received a lot of feedback.  I just figured I would go to the Source, no pun intended.  I would really just like to see examples of citations, preferably made with Legacy.  As a followup I would like to ask for some screen shots of how that was inputed just to make sure I am doing the right thing.


But I get it.
