Bible Example

This page created 14 Feb 2005

Applies to Versions 8 & 9

This example illustrates how a family Bible might be entered as a source. See the introduction for notes that apply to all three of these examples.

Here is the example provided by Ms. Mills' Evidence! for Bible Record (with Provenance):

Primary Citation
(Endnotes or Footnotes)
Subsequent Citation
(Endnotes or Footnotes)

Bibliographic Entry
  1. Family data, Charles Bertrand Family Bible, La Sainte Bible, new edition (Paris: Pourrat Frères, 1838); original owned in 1996 by Gary B. Mills (1732 Ridgedale Drive; Tuscaloosa, AL 35406). The Bertrand Family Bible passed from Charles to his daughter Henriette (Bertrand) Charleville, to her daughter Manerva (Charleville) Mills, to her grandson, Gary B. Mills.  1. Charles Bertrand Family Bible. Bertrand, Charles, family data. In La Sainte Bible. New edition. Paris: Pourrat Frères, 1838. Original owned in 1996 by Gary B. Mills, 1732 Ridgedale Drive; Tuscaloosa, AL 35406-1942.

Wholly Genes has interpreted that example to create the following TMG templates for it's source type Bible Record:

Full Footnote Short Footnote Bibliography
[FAMILY INFO], [ITAL:][BIBLE TITLE][:ITAL]<, [EDITION]> ([PUBLISHER ADDRESS]: [PUBLISHER], [PUBLISH DATE]); [PRESENT OWNER], [LOCATION]<, [CD]><. Hereinafter cited as [SHORT BIBLE TITLE]>. [SHORT BIBLE TITLE]<, [CD]>. [FAMILY INFO]. [ITAL:][BIBLE TITLE][:ITAL]<, [EDITION]>. [PUBLISHER ADDRESS]: [PUBLISHER], [PUBLISH DATE]. [PRESENT OWNER], [LOCATION].

In an attempt to match the example in Evidence! I then entered the following data in a TMG source definition, using TMG's Bible Record source type:

When I created a report in TMG citing this source, the program used the Output Templates in the Source Type and the text I had entered in the various Source Elements to create the following notes:

Original owned in 1996 by Gary B. Mills, 1732 Ridgedale Drive; Tuscaloosa, AL 35406.

To make it easier to compare, I'm repeating Ms. Mills' examples here:

  1. Family data, Charles Bertrand Family Bible, La Sainte Bible, new edition (Paris: Pourrat Frères, 1838); original owned in 1996 by Gary B. Mills (1732 Ridgedale Drive; Tuscaloosa, AL 35406).
