When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information (often called [[Transfer_the_Information#Cite_Your_Sources|citing your sources]]). This will help people find the record again and evaluate the reliability of the source. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records. Citations are available for the collection as a whole and each record or image individually.
