    One Source/Two Sources?

    When I have a census page that contains two different family names, and I have both of those names in my Family File, should I create one Source and include both names in the file name, or should I make two separate Sources?

      I create one source, and include both names in 'PERSON' field for the source. I also use Spotlight Comments to add both names to the File Info window, and tag the document with any surname branches that are included. And because I link the source to each person mentioned, I don't have any trouble finding the source when I need it. But this is just how I do it. You'll have to experiment to find what works for you.
