Advice on adding scanned documents for sources

+2 votes
I need to add sources that are scanned documents such as a divorce decree and a birth record that is an affidavit. I cannot find these records anywhere online. Should I add the images directly to the profile or create a free space profile for them somehow? (I don't know much about free space. I know they exist lol) Some advice/help would be appreciated :)

I used a free space profile for the journal of my great great grandfather that I uploaded.  Then I used it as a source for the evidence I presented like this... <ref name="PruettBook">"[[Space: The_Pruett_Family_Book|The Pruett Book. Pruett, James B., Oakland, California, 1914, transcribed by Clinton Pruett]]" </ref>  When I wanted to use that same source again for another fact, I used <ref name="PruettBook" />.  

Here is the help page for creating the free space profile:

I hope this helps.
Thank you, Caryl. I appreciate the response. The thing is I don't know if it would be better to do that or just upload the images to her profile. These don't pertain to anything or anyone else so it would never be used as a reference for any other information like yours. But again, thank you for responding!
I personally prefer to see images attached to the profile.

I believe you can only add a certain number of images to the profile itself (five?).  But I may be dreaming that.  If that is so, you may find it better to create a free space if there are many documents.
