Paula, I treat the photo like any other document or copy. When it is mentioned in the report there is a footnote and a reference to the attachment #. The footnote matches the source citation label on the pix or doc. This source citation label also includes the report info.

Several genealogist friends scan the documents or photos and insert them onto the pages of the report. I don't like doing that because (without a publishing program) I can't make the objects and text flow correctly. Maybe it's nitpicky, or old fashioned, but I prefer the documents and pictures as attachments anyway.

Subject: [TGF] Photography and citations

A quick question for all of you who perform cemetery photography - how do
you include the photographs in your research report? Do you place the image
into your research report and add a footnote or do you add a note in the
body of your report as to what was photographed and add the footnote? The
other question pertaining to this subject is on the proper citation of these
digital photographs. I've looked through EE and couldn't come up with
anything that fit this category.

Thanks for your consideration!
