Document Your Sources Using CitePro™ Technology

The Define Source Screen

Breakthrough technologies allow you to cite sources in ways never before possible.

  • Create source records.
  • Attach them to the whole event, or just to a date or a place
  • View all sources for an individual or marriage on a special summary screen

Organize Your Sources

  • Categorize sources by type
  • View a list of all sources, or just those matching a type such as Census or Birth Certificates
  • Sort this list by the Title, Author, Short Title or Abbreviate Author
  • Select from a special list of just those sources cited on records of immediate family
  • View all citations for a source.

Administer Citations

Attach a single citation to multiple events and multiple records. View all events for a citation.

While editing a source, or viewing the list of sources, view a list of all places where the source has been cited.

Print Sources as Footnotes

On printouts, a single source citation will print only once, and show the same footnote number, regardless of how many events were found in that source.

The Documentation Screen

The Documentation screen allows you to view and edit all the documentation from one window, without having to jump back and forth between different parts of the program.

  • See all the notes and sources for an individual and each of his marriages on one screen. Use the tabs across the top to select the portion of documentation you want to review.
  • For notes, you can use the optional "tag" side bar to organize your notes.

Organize Your Sources

  • View all citations for an individual or marriage
  • Use the optional Tools side bar to organize your sources
  • Add new source citations to any event while viewing the summary
  • Remove source citations while viewing the summary of sources for an individual or marriage
  • Edit a source citation right from this summary screen
  • Rearrange the order of source citations for a given event.

Note: This screen image shows the screen after the "Add" button has been clicked. You can choose which event to add a new source citation to.
