Vital certificates, State Level

This post is an update to my post Comparing source citations – Vital certificates, state level.

In this post, I showed how I set up a source using the Birth Registration, State Level source template in RootsMagic, and the elements had appeared out of order.

Today, after setting up a custom source template for Vital Certificate, State Level, I found that as well as the above source template, RootsMagic also came with other source templates, which included Vital Records (state, certificates).  After completing the source citation using this template, the results were

Footnote: Victoria, Australia, Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, birth certificate 63436/62 (1962), Lois Vivienne Whimpey; Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, Melbourne.

Short Footnote: Victoria, Australia birth certificate 63436/62, (1962), Lois Vivienne Whimpey.

Bibliography: Victoria, Australia. Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. birth certificates. Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, Melbourne.

These match up with the Quick-Check Model on the Evidence Explained website.
