Handling (almost) identical citations when available from multiple sources. Example: a citation was created (using a template) from a source that was originally found only on FamilySearch. Now Ancestry has the same information available, even using an identical database title (and gives a "hint" to it.) How do you recommend handling the "source" which could be argued is identical, although the channel to get to the source, and therefore the citation, is different.I submit that these are two different Sources. Ancestry and FamilySearch. That would required TWO Citations, in fact Two Source Groups.
I often will have a Hint from Ancestry.com and it has a Film Number from FamilySearch. I will cite the Ancestry entry, then go over to FamilySearch, find that Film Number and entry and Cite that one as well. Somethings, when I have done this, I find that the Image my be clearer on one vs the other. I will KEEP both and Cite Both. Yes, it may be the same source material.
Find-A-Grave is another example of this. I will cite the Index from Ancestry.com, but will go to the Find-A-Grave website, find that memorial. One source in Ancestry.com the other the Find-A-Grave website. Two Source Groups. Two Citations.
I have 28 Blog posts on how I handle Find-A-Grave information
Hope that answers your question
