Reference Repetition

Those of you who have followed the "On This Day" feature of my blog for awhile have no doubt noticed that some basic references appear again and again -- Hiram T. French and James H. Hawley, for example.

To reduce the repetition of those citations, I have included them on a separate page, which you can access by clicking on the "References" tab at the top of the blog page -- right next to the "Home" designation, below the "South Fork Companion" header. Detailed citations will still be provided for references that are specific to a particular item.

Over the next week or so, I plan to go back and edit my previous posts and make this change in their references also (I hope it only takes that long).

 This is a very nice feature provided by, by the way.  I may re-do my linked "Comments" instructions using the same approach.


  1. It's great that you provide references. So few people do. The only problem I have is I don't live in Idaho, so my library doesn't have the old histories of Idaho you use a lot.

  2. I can't help for all of them, but the Hiram T. French and James H. Hawley histories are available on the web as scanned Google Books. For historic individuals, there's usually much more information in those biographies than I can put in my blog.
