Don't Just Download

You found an image of a document on a website--it looks like a copy of an original document and it very well may be. But....ask yourself:

  • just what is this document?
  • is it a county, state, federal, or other type of record?
  • could I find it again if I needed to?
There are a variety of other questions as well, but these will get you started.

And make certain you save it with a file name that makes sense.

  1. When I download research material, I like to add the citation info either as a tag or some other way.
