I added an obituary for Elizabeth (McLaughlin) Dosser on her profile page. I have it listed right before the obituary itself like this - source: newpapers.com - The Taylor Daily Press (Taylor, Texas), Monday, February 24, 1919, Page 1. Do I still need to put a reference tag at the bottom for it? Thanks.

** Disclaimer ** - I am a big nitpicker when it comes to sources. I would put the source at the bottom and use an inline reference like you've done with the facts of her life, for the obituary itself. BUT, since you are not using the obituary as a reference for any of the facts, you don't really have to.

I would add the reference tags and have the citation show up in sources. Also, if you can find some of the sources in FamilySearch (free) instead of Ancestry, then anyone who looks at this profile will be able to click on the source and see what it actually says. The census records are on FS so that is doable. Some of the sources you might only find on Ancestry and everyone understands that is the case.
