I agree with Terry; one "primary" repository per source. But that is for
What I am planning is a separate source per topic (i.e., the separate topics
of birth records, marriage records, and death records) and each source would
have the same repository (i.e., the Ontario Archives) and a comment that
these records were viewed on-line through Ancestry.com. In this case, as
well as for census images, I don't consider Ancestry.com to be a repository
any more than I would consider my local library the "primary repository" for
their collection of federal census films.
However, Ancestry.com does provide a much more user-friendly search vehicle
than what is available in terms of "finding aids" at the Ontario Archives
(the term "ugly" comes to mind <g>), so well deserves credit for that in my
lumpy set of sources.
