I have been researching for some years, currently use FTM 2010, and have more than 600 people in my tree. When I started, I did not have a guide for entering sources, and I now want to revise my source citations to be consistent with Elizabeth Mills' "Evidence Explained." Right now, I'm going through my citations for Italian civil records drawn primarily from FHL microfilms.
I assume that I should be using the Local and State Records--Vital Records template, with Local for films from a particular town and State for films from the province.
Am I correct in thinking that the repository--in this case, the FHL--can be linked only to the source in the master source list? If I try to add it under Source Repository in the template window for an individual person, I get an error message saying that I can't add it because it's already used.
Also, Mills states (p. 384) that when citing local government (in her example, county) records, "the location of the repository will typically be cited after the first reference to that county." In FTM, how would one decide which is the first reference? And would the repository then be included in the citation detail? Or is this pertinent only to publication?
