This video by Julie Ricketts on inline references is very useful when learning to add sources to Wikitree.

Ah yes, the visual works for me.  I'll have to work on it for sure.
It's going to take a long time to get it all done as I have more that 5000 entries in my combined tree (mine and my husbands).
Check for existing profiles before you add them. Some of those 5000 will already be on Wikitree and it is important that we do not create duplicates.

I use the Citation Machine. You can also enter "manual" records (paper records) to create a citation. www.citationmachine.net.

Thank you!  I checked into it and not certain I could figure it out.  Will look into it further.
I would be happy to help you. PM or email me if I can assist.
