transcription/abstraction of a birth announcement from a newspaper.  I have
ESM book EE but I don't find what I need.  I am new to this mail list and
hope someone can help me.  The online source does provide me with the
information about which newspaper the abstraction came from and where I can
get an actual copy of the entry.  
Jo, EE 14.22 "Newspaper Articles" (p. 809) has a citation model for
"Newspapers (Online Transcripts)." While the example uses an editorial
letter rather than a birth announcement, that difference is immaterial. The
content and structure of the citation remains the same, including the
notation as to the source of your source.
