    For published books, the EasyBib tool is a great idea--the citation style for books varies little between MLA, CMOS, and other citation guides. However, this tool does not help when attempting to cite original records. The best reference for citation of genealogical and historical records is EVIDENCE EXPLAINED by Elizabeth Shown Mills (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing, 2007; second edition 2009). This reference is based on the Chicago Manual of Style, but provides more details for many of the records used by genealogists.
