Would someone mind taking a look at the two citation examples for Dutchess
County Ancient Documents, in the local government records section of
Evidence Explained, and explain the principle behind putting the state of
New York in parentheses in the first and between commas in the second? As I
read the text, the only difference is supposed to be that the records cited
by the second note are on microfilm. Is this just illustrating two
different ways to indicate the state and it doesn't matter which you choose,
or is there a deeper nuance that I'm missing? Thanks.
