Great information on crafting a source citation using RootsMagic…
The photograph image I have is a digital image (scanned by myself in about 2001) of a photocopy provided to me in 1993 by Barbara Richmond by postal mail. Barbara obtained the first photocopy from Roma Challis, my fourth cousin, a resident of Hilperton and 3rd great-granddaughter of John Richman, in about 1985. The original photograph is, apparently, an ambrotype cased image, handed down over the years by the Richman family in Hilperton, that was in Roma’s possession before she died several years ago.
The rule I’ve learned is to cite the record that you have, or researched and found, in its present media form; not the original record – not the “source of the source” – although the “source of the source” could be included as a provenance statement.
