    Automatic Sources and Page References

    If this seems an obvious question, my apologies; I'm a newbie and I'm struggling a bit with how to deal with sources. (The ReunionTalk message boards and various macgenealogist videos on youtube have been very illuminating, but I haven't come across any references to my particular concern.)

    I have a book with several published pedigrees I want to breakdown and include in my family tree. For the first entry, I made the book an automatic source with a reference to page 15.

    If I use the same document as an automatic source for another entry and change the page reference, it changes the page reference in the previous entry, etc.

    Should I just not include page references with automatic sources (perhaps putting them in the notes field?) or is there a way that I can have the same document as an automatic source for multiple entries yet with different page references?

    Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

    In this situation, I have made the book the source, and when I cite the source in the person record, I use the source detail field for the page number. The detail field can take unique data for each use of the source.
