How do I turn memories into sources?

+4 votes
I have personal memories of my grandmother, including memories of her telling me about “old times”old people”. Of course, I can add this information to the memories section on a profile, but what I really would like is to integrate it into biographies.

What is the best way to do this? Should I just add the information and refer to “told by xx to yy”, or would it be better to write a separate document with these memories, add a free space profile for it and refer to the document?

Any preferences or ideas?

My preference would be to add the information to each of the people concerned, sourced as you described and probably including her relationship to that person. But you probably have a great deal you'd like to say about your grandmother which would be subjective. That, perhaps, would be better on a free space page. Think I'm saying do both depending on the memory.

es n,

Yes, you can create a citation something like the following (including links to their various profiles):

<ref>Paulina Jauch Smith (1884-1963), personal memories as shared with her son John Smith, during his last visit to Buffalo, New York, summer of 1962.</ref>
