About this WikiTree Free-Space Project

WikiTree encourages citing of sources for all genealogy profiles. However, actually composing a citation is a painful process. This Free-Space page is intended to make it easier for WikiTreers to repeatedly cite this particular source.

Right now, this project just has one member, me. I am Brian McCullough.

Here are some of the tasks that probably need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Create a proper physical description
  • begin a list of addenda
