A few of my old emails got resent last night due to an issue
with my Droid X maildroid software and/or my sausage fingers.

Sorry about that.

I don't see a need to have source citation templates in a gen program, so that's not a problem for me.  Some simple way to attach source citations to facts fills my needs.  I think there's too much potential of ending up with something that doesn't match the purposes that I create source citations for, when you fill in blanks in some template.  Form and format is not as important to me as content and purpose.  And though I know many will argue that you need the former to rationalize the latter, I don't agree.  I think sometimes we are too consumed by "proper format" and form in genealogy, at the expense of more important things.  If I was writing an article for a journal or magazine, of course I would conform to their standards, that would be a given (or the article wouldn't get past the gate, I imagine).
