About 10 years ago I added my genealogical information to FTM Version 16. A year ago I got FTM 2012 and imported my database.

I realized that my references could be in better shape and spent that last few weeks working through my Places. While they may not be technically correct, at least I have removed all duplicate places from my database, and the place name are nearly in the same format.

I would like to do the same thing for my Sources/ Citations. As I start to work on them, the first question to come up, is tagging the different records. Some of these citations are transcription of the original, I may only have the information that appears in a note. While others I may have a copy of the original document on my computer as a PDF file.

Is there a way I can flag the Source/Citation to indicate that I have an original copy on my computer?

If the original document is on my computer I can pull it up to answer questions, if not it is a trip to the original which could be many miles.
