For a book on such an important subject with regards to genealogy, I was a little disappointed. While there are ample examples throughout book, this book is out-of-date for today's genealogist. No mention of electronic sources and how to document. Save your money and buy "Evidence: Citation and Analysis for the Family Historian" by Elizabeth Shown Mills. Ms. Mills refers to Lackey's book countless times and gives better examples.

This was THE authority on the subject, however Elizabeth Shown Mills' book Evidence! Citation and Analysis for the Family Historian is better.

This book is well thought out and accurate; however, it is somewhat outdated for today's researcher. There are no mentions of web/Internet data. The formats suggested for the Works Cited or footnotes section of a genealogist's publication are somewhat archaic.

I have had my copy of the CITE YOUR SOURCES for so many years, I cannot remember when I bought it. The point being that this should be just about the first book anyone starting their reseach should buy. If we as new or researchers of long standing do not Cite Our Sources, our research is really not worth much to ourselves or to others. Thanks to Mr. Lackey for writing it and for those who have kept it in publication for so many years. To dwell on just a few chapters would be unfair to the entire book. Each page is most important to our research as a whole - not just in part as we all must know where each available proof is located in order that our information may be taken as fact rather than "I think or I believe".

Old fashioned book, but good solid information. Great reference for any genealogist's library. Easy to understand.

I started doing some genealogy. I knew I needed to gather the census & vital records. Then someone dropped a bomb: I needed to site my sources. Naturally I went searching for a book and found this one. The price was excellent. It is okay but is outdated. Since buying this book, I found "Evidence: Citation and Analysis for the Family Historian" by Elizabeth Shown Mills is the Holy Grail on citing your sources. That will my next purchase.
