<Sources>

Gigatrees5 supports adding new sources (by adding a new unique record id) using the <Sources> option or for adding metadata to existing sources (by referencing the source record id). For instance, you can use this option can be used to add source category to existing source, add a source type to an existing source, add a reusable source citation template to an existing source, or to add source specific source citation fields to the source directly. It can also be used to set a source privacy field to values like Copyright or Sensitive so that when the <Privatize> option is enabled, it will be stripped from your family tree. When modifying existing sources, redefining an metadata element, such as the source title, will overwrite the existing value. Besides these very useful features, it can be used to add a slew of new metadata fields that can be used by the source citation templates. The <Media> or <Gallery> options can be used to easily add images to new or existing source records.

Gigatrees5 provides a large list of source metadata fields below, however, the list provide does not include every possible metadata field described in Evidence Explained, so for specializations, it may be necessary to commandeer an element for another use. For instance if you are creating a Census template and need an element to indicate "enumeration district", you may want to use Collection since that element would not normally apply. Every element is a simple text string, so as long as your template matches your elements, the names of the elements do not really matter.

Source records can be referenced from any blog post or note field found in your genealogy database (including embedded notes) using Embedded References.
