Merging Sources - Advantage or Not?

Posted: 1 Jan 2013 4:55AM GMT
Classification: Query
I have being adding quite a few individuals to my tree using Ancestry Hints, a combination of actual data records and details from other trees.

However, I have noticed it has created multiple entries in my "sources", for example, I have now two sources for the 1841 England Census, one has 20 citations and the other 8.

If I use the "merge" option, to replace one with the other - 1. Does this keep all the relevant information? 2. Is it wise to do this? 3. Does it matter if I merge A with B or B with A.

I am thinking I dont want to end up with multiple sources, as I am at the moment.
