Re: Importance Value of various Birth Sources

Your list is quite rational although early Census records may be more contemporary than later Marriage, Death, or Burial records.
In the Sources For yellow citations panel use the black up/down arrows to move the Source records into the desired precedence order.
Also the Assessment for each Source Citation could say how reliable you believe the information to be.
That should be just for the Birth information in this case, and will partly depend on how contemporary the record is.
i.e. a Birth Certificate or Baptism record is most contemporary with the Birth event, but later records less so, with Death or Burial being least contemporary.
