Could a Personal Artifacts example be added to the Sources page? An excellent response on how to cite such items was given by Rob Ton on this topic in http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/91091/how-would-you-link-a-personal-document-as-source-in-wikitree?show=91094#a91094

The wording might need some adjusting but I think it would help those looking for the correct way to cite the miscellaneous documents we all have in our files. You know the one, that funeral memorial card that your Mom kept after Great-Aunt Mary died. It may be the only evidence found to date that indicates the name she always used was not her complete given name of Gertrude Mary.

Well, this is a great reference to a method I hadn't come across yet.  I probably won't have time to give it a try until Monday or so, but i have a lot of this sort of material and will work hard to learn it so I can enter them into WikiTree.
