By "BC", "DC", and "MC" I presume you mean birth, death, and marriage certificates.

Am I understanding that you have actual physical copies, and want to know how to cite them?

Hey Linda,

You might find the help page on sources helpful:

Drag and drop is one method, or copy and paste is another 

this is an example of a source 

  • "United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M2M5-C7F : accessed 5 May 2018), John T Howell, Justice Precinct 2, Archer, Texas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 2, sheet 13A, family 210,

If you have the physical document you can scan or photograph it and upload the image. Just click on the Images tab and follow directions to upload. If you have the information, but not the actual document you can source it something like “State of New Hampshire, Department of Public Health, Death Certificate, Joe B. Parks, 31 March, 2010, Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire.”  If it’s imaged on line it’s helpful to also include a link to the image.  It’s always helpful to include a complete transcript.

If you have physical, images, and depending on what counrty issued them, you may or may not be allowed to post their images on wikitree.

It would helpful to know which country they are from.

 If the forms are under copyright then you can transcribe the details - type them out - so everyone can see - and then include a link to the office that issued them.
