US Southern Colonies Project Reliable Sources
- Sources, or Resources ? What's the difference ?
- Laura DeSpain, our Sourcerers Team Leader, explains the distinction between sources and resources as follows:
- Sources: "This is where you find the information that you use to create a citation."
- Resources: "Information that will help you locate a source. Including the history, changes in boundaries, wars, anything that may help you locate the source you are looking for." (These are the things that can affect the location of a source, whether it may exist anymore, etc.)
- Tip from Laura: "When I cannot locate a source, the first thing I do is start checking boundary changes and whether or not battles or fires may have destroyed any places that stored records for the area."
- WikiTree's Sources Style Guide help page defines Sources and References more broadly (omitting mention of "Resources"):
- Sources: "What we call sources could be called items in a source list, bibliography, or works cited." with the next paragraph saying "On WikiTree we put them beneath the references and a line that says "See also:". "
- References: "What we call references could be called citations, reference notes, inline references, footnotes, or endnotes." and the next paragraph says "A reference provides a source for a specific statement in the text."
Table of Sources/Resources
- NOTE: Green-shaded rows are US Southern Colonies Project pages (project-level pages categorized under Category: US Southern Colonies Project; colony-level pages are categorized under the colony-level location categories). Grey-shaded rows are other projects that have sources/resources that may also be helpful to US Southern Colonies Project members. If the page listed is a category page, it will be followed by a [Navigate] link, which will show subcategories that may be of interest to project members.
