Well this certainly opens things up in a big way.  I bet I've read about it here before, but it just didn't click until now.  Now I just need to see what there might be I can use in my research.  Also what it takes to connect the books and records I've been using.  I can see a bunch of questions in my future.

Added:  I don't see either Rick Pierpont or Chris Whitten having chimed in here yet.  There was considerable discussion back in early March on using sources which basically rely on Transclusion.  I don't see that it's been finally settled yet.  So while it's great having the resources, those wanting to use the material may want to hold off until a final decision is made.
You said it that's the word I was trying to figure out. I think I browsed through that same discussion but I was unable to re-find it again. Transclusion, I want to learn all about transclusion!

I would love it if Rick Pierpont and Chris Whitten could give us a link to that g2g discussionn. Wikitree users really should discover what this library of sources, lists of lists can do I just need to figure out how exactly to do this since I am struggling with how to set up and format my profiles correctly...

Please see this link to see the full potential of this library and the reason why it is the way it is, all the soursces come from our source boxes and never need to be updated manually. Instead, this list of sources is being continuously updated by a program so it is always up to date.

Thanks, I've just had a quick browse. I note that there seems to be a bit of confusion in the English listings by county. Durham wasn't the only County Palatine. Lancaster and Cheshire were as well.

But just a small point. The page itself is excellent.
