Source grouping


Why not trying to support source association, like current person objects association ?

Sources are stored on repositories, but we may have a source reference into a source: they are related together.

ex: Book/publication/index gives some source references. Primary source will be the Book/publication/index, child references will be the secondary sources. Large data might be stored into multiple sources, which are shared between persons, events, etc ...

Sorry, it seems to be your propoal ...


but in this case, change will be less intrusive!
ie. just add something like :
sourceref with hlink and group attributes into a source object.
It is specific to source object and there is one direction, like personref on person object.

Record each page as a source reference

The Source Reference is not shared, there is a separate instance for each place where it occurs (e.g. each event).

What I am doing is dragging the source reference from one references tab to another, then I have all attributes shared as well (such as page, year) BACbKA 12:31, 31 January 2011 (EST)
