The grey area is used for info on the whole book or whatever.Example -
the book "Early Families of York County Pennsylvania" All the
publication data and author data would go in the grey area. That
would be common to hundreds of people. The yellow area:
"Samuel married Catherine, who was born in 1804."
anything needed as explanation
Pg 30, Samuel Ruhl
What you beleive the reliability of the source to be.
I have been doing a lot of Census work, so the only yellow blocks I
normally use are page and quality. I don't copy in the actual text,
unless it is something that strongly implies what I am using it for a
source for. In the above, I wouldn't copy in that text, as this would
be a source for the marriage of Samuel Ruhl and Catherine.
Does that help??
