During the study of Chapter 4 - GPS Element 2: Source Citations, we talked about five (5) questions. It became "the 5 W's". Who, What, When, Where In, and When is. All that information is what makes up a good Citation. So, can Family Tree Maker (FTM2014) answer those questions? Better yet, ask US those questions so that we can "fill in the blanks".
 Thomas W. Jones, Mastering Genealogical Proof (Arlington, Virginia: National Genealogical Society, 2013), 33I thought that I would use the Citation for the Mastering Genealogical Proof Endnote here, and break it apart, for a good example:
- Who - Thomas W Jones
- What - Mastering Genealogical Proof
- When - 2013
- Where In - page 33
- Where Is - Arlington, Virginia: National Genealogical Society
If I understand this correctly, since this is a Book, I will copy and paste one from FTM2014:
Bart Anderson, The Sharples - Sharpless Family, 3 vols. (West Chester, Pennsylvania, 1966), Vol 1, Page 217. #1989 Hannah H. Sharpless.
- Who - Bart Anderson
- What - The Sharples - Sharpless Family, 3 vols
- When - 1966
- Where In - Vol 1, Page 217; #1989 Hannah H. Sharpless
- Where Is - West Chester, Pennsylvania
The #1989 entry is the specific person on that page. (a published work). The 4th bullet is from the Citation detail and Citation text fields. The rest is from the Book; Multivolume Set (Print Publish) template.
Wow, that appears to be correct.
The only issue here is the Repository: field. In previous research on this process, a book should not have a Repository, as you can get that book from anywhere. I had my address in that field, as the three books are on my bookshelf. Because I am trying to be standard, I have selected None for the Repository.
