Citing What I Did Not Find
The next issue of Casefile Clues contains the following statement:
"They [James and Elizabeth Rampley] are the only Rampley family in the 1850 census for Illinois, Missouri, or Iowa."
How do I cite such a statement? Do I indicate the database I searched, when I searched it, and how my search was conducted?
I have some ideas, but I'm curious to see if any readers have any thoughts?
