I have been working very hard to add proper citations to French Canadian profiles from the original registers available at Genealogiequebec,com (Drouin Insitute).
As far as I understand PRDH-IGD gets their information from the same database and I know that if I am at PRDH and I choose to look at an image it directs me back to the genealogiequebec.com website. Therefore, I consider the Drouin Institute to be the correct owner that should be listed in a citation.
Today I found a profile had been edited and all my citations for the birth/baptism, marriages (3), and the death/burial had all been removed and had been replaced with IGD citations. While these citations are ok, they do not link to the owner of the database where the images are found.
Maybe I am being petty, but I think that when someone has gone to a considerable effort to find the best citation possible for Quebec genealogy (and I think that is the Drouin collection), it should not be removed but added to.
It has been pointed out to me in the past that familysearch.org has the Drouin database for free, but since it is difficult to find family members that are all connected on the PRDH-IGD, I have decided not to use familysearch (which would be my first choice for just about all other North American families). I would be thrilled if someone added the Familysearch link so that anyone could access it without having to subscribe to genealogiequebec.com and PRDH like I do.
I have been known to remove bad sources (mostly ancestry trees) or links that do not work. I have moved Nos Origines links to a "See also" section when that is the only source listed and I have added Drouin citations. I think any site that offers "clues" should be retained but it should be recognized that a compiled site is only as good as the sources listed, and a lot don't have any sources listed. If a source link leads to a sign on page, I delete it when I am adding my citations. This is also the reason I don't usually add the whole genealogyquebec URL, but give the Acte # and the Image # so some one with a subscription can find the image quickly and easily without searching.
I have even added a whole Drouin citation when all that was there was "Drouin Collection" (which is better than nothing), but I have never deleted perfectly good citations/sources that someone has gone to a lot of trouble to add.
OK, I'm stepping off my soap box...
