    Correct source fields for SSDI accessed via Family Search

    I'm a newbie trying to set up source templates. I'd appreciate feedback and correction on this : For a SSDI record that I found on family search, I used these fields :
    1. Title = USSSDI
    2. Media type = Database
    3. Author = Family Search
    4. URL = the url
    5. Date = Date I accessed the info
    6. File Name = name of deceased and date of death.
    Are the template fields I chose correct, and am I putting the right info into each field? Thank you!

    I don't think there's any such thing as 'correct' here: there will be different methods. Personally I keep the work to a minimum, so I'd leave out 'Media type=database' (too obvious) and also— - this will surprise people— - name of deceased and date of death, because those will already be quite clear from where I'm attaching the source. Over the years, I've experienced no problems from this approach.
