This is why writing a biography with inline sources works well. You tell the facts that were included in the sources that you reference, then enclose the link inside <ref></ref> tags.
Mind you, it's not unacceptable to copy the entire source then show a link for that source, but it's not that easy to read, especially when people don't use a new line for each part of the source. It's just easier to read William Smith was born on this date and was baptised at this church on this date,<ref>"Whatever Database." blah blah blah</ref> than to read "First name: William Last name: Smith, Birth year, 1842, Baptism year: 1842, Baptism date: 02 Dec 1842." <ref>"Whatever Database." blah blah blah</ref> Sometimes people don't even give details on the record, they simply say "Whatever Database."
But we have have different opinions on such things. I usually refer to these help pages:
