The following is from Ancestry Academy.

New Course on Ancestry Academy!

We've added a new course on Ancestry Academy by board-certified genealogist Thomas W. Jones about documentation and citations, Getting Started Right: Documentation for New Genealogists. If you’ve ever wondered how to document your research correctly and easily, you’ll find this is perfect for you, no matter your skill level!

Getting Started Right: Documentation for New Genealogists, with with Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG®, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS

Documenting from day 1 helps you avoid revisiting the same materials again and again, and it helps you understand important qualities of materials you use. Most important, documentation is essential for a family history to help others. This 15-part course gives straightforward guidelines for citing materials, using waypoints, and otherwise documenting your research.
