<< I tend to work with sources repeatedly for different people. For example,
the Grand Rapids Herald newspaper (a source) might have obits for thirty
different relatives because they all lived there. But the date of
publication would be different for each one. So is that 30 sources? Yikes.
For me it would be. I would make a seperate source for each obit. To me the
obit is the source, not the newspaper. But others would use the newspaper
with the obit in the CD. Depends on how you want to deal with it. After I
make the source, quote it, I rarely go back to that source, so it doesn't
matter if I have 30 sources, once I move to 31, I don't need 28 anymore. I
just made my 2003 source Friday. Yes that is 2003 different sources. Each
crossed referenced to my filing cabinet, each fully abstracted.
