Is It One Book Or A Series

When using local or even published materials, make certain you indicate if the book is one standalone volume or a volume in a series.

"County Court Orders 1790-1802" is probably a volume and title and page will work.
"Deed Book" is probably not sufficient as that "deed book" likely is one of a series for the locality.

Make certain your title, particularly of unpublished materials, is accurate and complete enough to get you to the same book again, if necessary.

  1. "1860 Census" is not sufficient either!
