Source Citation Template - Source Group

In an effort to learn the Source-Citation Templates the many Template Screens were reviewed to help select the best Template for a specific Source that was on hand. An Earlier Blog entry

Source-Citation Template - County Marriage Index

was created. Thinking the others might be interested in a little more information about these templates, over time, other blog entries will be created to help select the correct Template quicker.

This is only ONE WAY to select the appropriate template, but this series will be to walk through that various screens involved.

As you will see, the terms being use with the Family Tree Maker resemble that of Evidence Explained by Elizabeth Shown Mills

To access the Source-Citation Template, go to the People Work Space, selecting the Person Tab, the appropriate FACT is selected. For this example, the Name FACT is used. In Figure 183, below we select New (1)

The New, Add Source screen, has a new line (the top line), if you have been a user of Family Tree Maker. It is the Select Source Template line. For this blog, we will Manually select the template. In the future, other options for selecting the Template will be shown.

On the Right end of the Select Template line, is the More button. (2).
