Disclaimer This is not a place for DEEP Genealogical Digging, you can find that on the Pull-down Menus at the top of the page. This page is a collection of "Official WikiTree Help Pages as well as pages written by Wikitree Members". Member - created Free Space Pages, while often very helpful, should not be used as an official reference when discussing WikiTree Styles, Standards and Policies.

Zaney Things that drive me nuts!
  • Place your first source below the references tag, not between Sources and References! Please! It drives me crazy and it is not clearly described anywhere on any Help page! If one places a source between Sources and references, the inline citations will not show up or the will show up incorrectly....

Hi, Loretta --

I just saw your note in the Z section about the references tag.

I wanted to let you know that this is mentioned on Help:Sources ... see: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Sources#Embed_them_as_references_.28footnotes.29

Thanks!

Julie
