Ancestry.com or GEDcom are not "Sources" of original documentation
Bruce Thompson said: I've noticed that many people cite Ancestry.com or GEDCom as a source of data. Both of these are 'secondary' sources of original documentation, not the original source. GEDCom files are user-generated with no documentation. This makes for many duplicate Sources on the Person Pages. Perhaps "Sources" could be labeled "Original Documents or Sources" or something like that with instructions not to cite secondary sources.
