Evidence Explained: citation guide for historical sources

Historians are well-versed in using the Chicago Manual of Style as a guide to citing historical sources. Green Library also holds an additional, valuable guide to citing historical sources, Evidence Explained, by Elizabeth Shown Mills. Containing over 1000 citation models, ranging from civil and religious censuses to wills and probate files, Evidence Explained provides essential citation models for many primary source documents not covered in the Chicago Manual of Style.
