Ok, I thought I understood the FTM referencing system.

When I go to Sources, I am presented three panes. The left pane is titled Source Groups. The middle pane is titled Source Citations, and the right pane is title Source Citation Information. I can find the Repositories by clicking any Source in the left pane and selecting the Repository from the window in the middle of the Source Information page.

I could not find a SourceRepository as mentioned by kj_norway.

(Fact->Citation->Source->SourceRepository->Repository)

What am I missing?

Because of speed issue with FTM and some stability issues I have concerns about linking or placing media into the FTM file. Some of the census documents are as much as 2mb. My FTM file is 10mb. so it would not take many census reports to have a gigabite FTM file. There for was looking for something like a fact that could be attached to a fact that would provide the information.

As I remember repositories are like library, etc. sources are like books and citations are like paragraphs from the book. I am simple minded and don't want to make it so I can not find anything.
