This is an addition to the previous post…
Something that I just discovered in Ancestry’s source naming is that they sometimes use a comma and sometimes they don’t. Here is an example:
California Birth Index, 1905-1995
California, Death Index, 1905-1939
Notice the comma after California? Now, what is the problem with that you ask? Well, the Sources are sorted alphbetically and when a comma is thrown in it sometimes moves a Source down on the list. This also just messes with my OCD immensely!
Dear Ancestry, Let’s just set rules for consistent Source naming and stick to them please.
Importan!: My advice is not to change the names of the Sources from Ancestry.com! You can of course (and I did a bunch by mistake), but you probably don’t want to because then when you merge other sources with the original name you will have to Sources and will need to merge the downloaded one with the one you renamed. I learned the hard way. I changed them all back today. See my original post on How to Verify a Source Name.
