I was pleased recently to see an option to create citations for images uploaded to Ancestry.com member trees:
Is that new? I'm at that age where I no longer trust my own memory. Assuming it is new, this is a great step forward. Previously, I had to store the citation in the image description field:
I was excited to try out this (possibly) new feature. I uploaded a photograph. I created a citation. (I won't take the time to describe that nightmare here. Baby steps. Baby steps.) I came back to the image to see where the citation was displayed. I looked in every nook and cranny of the page and could not find it anywhere!
For a while I believed Ancestry.com had thrown my citation away. I even contemplated reentering it. Ultimately, I found Ancestry.com had associated the citation to the person, not to the image!
Shoot! I've already used up my negativity budget for the month. I guess I won't say how awfully weird that is. Instead, let me commend Ancestry.com for a positive step toward evidence management.
Baby steps. Baby steps.
