Citations? Citations! Citations.” will be the workshop topic Nov 4, 2012 at the Clayton State University genealogy group meeting. The monthly meeting will be in the library in L200 at Clayton State University, 2000 Clayton State Blvd, Morrow, GA 30260. During the open research time from 2-3p.m., 1:1 help will be available for questions on computer genealogy, forms, or other challenges. The “Citations? Citations! Citations.” workshop will begin at 3p.m.
As our genealogy group promotes the workshop format, bring citation questions. Family historian, bring your item (or information about the item) such as a book, document, artifact, or photograph that needs a citation. Selma Blackmon will be leading the discussion on what is a citation, why citations are important, and the parts of a citation. An example using Roots Magic genealogical software source lists and source wizards will be included in the program. Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace by Elizabeth Shown Mills is the reference for this topic.
