Good Afternoon Rich,

You might wish to check the Entering Date Ranges and Entering Date Spans
information in online help.

I have used these entry methods to identify employment of an ancestor when I
find the same type of employment in the 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 census
records. I have also used the entry methods to identify where I have lived,
as I know precise dates.

I guess that I've never had the occasion to use a date span before and could
use a little clarification on methods for citing the sources.

I have found another source for my grandfather's employment. So now I have
two dates for the same employment, so I am entering a date span of
say: "20 January 1905 to 20 January 1920". So I can have two citations and
they can be shown to apply to the start or end date of the span internally
in Genbox but, how can I create a separate citation in my narratives. Say,
"...was employed as a molder from 20 January 1905 (1) to 20 January 1920
(Sorry, for not having the citations as superscripts!)
