A source is what goes in the bibliography. Footnotes/endnotes are
citations.. In the Evidence chart Mills uses the term Bibliographic Entry,
but on her newer QuickSheet she uses Source List Entry instead. Both seem
to refer to the bibliography and the source of "Ohio Stark County Marriage
Records.... " would be fine. The citations (footnotes/endnotes) are called
primary citation and subsequent citation in Evidence. On the QuickSheet
Mills uses the terms full reference note and short reference note.
Or at least that's what I get from Evidence & the Quicksheet.
