I've learned TONS from the work of Elizabeth Shown Mills, and I encourage everyone to check out her book, Evidence Explained. Short of that (it's big and not cheap), she runs a great facebook page you can like and get wonderful snippets of useful information about improving our research skills. Check it out:

Excellent resource, thank you so much!  I've started citing all my sources and have had many questions.  This is wonderful to find!

Thank you for the link Jillaine. I use Evidence Explained and also Citing Ancestry.com Databases & Images - the QuickSheet by Elizabeth Shown Mills, and this is a great resource I didn't know about. Her explanation is crystal clear.

I'm a fan boy of hers. She also has a web site now ( https://www.evidenceexplained.com) where she answers questions and walks through interesting citing case studies
