Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Baptism ~ (6) Create Repository Link


In the same way that a Source cites the derivation of one or more Facts, a Repository cites the owner of one or more original Source documents.

Watch the associated Create Repository Link tutorial video.

Baptism records may be lodged with the Parish Church in question.

So to cite the Newton Parish Church as the Repository, use the Link a repository… option.

In the Repository window select Link a new repository to this source.

Enter the Name as Newton Parish Church, and add present day contact details such as an Address of High Street, Newton, Surrey and Rectory Telephone number 01234 567890.

Click OK to close the window.

Alternatively, the Repository could cite an online genealogy website, such as Ancestry UK or Find My Past, from where the baptism source records were downloaded.

Other parish records obtained from the same place would simply link this existing Repository to the Source.
