G'day Jill,
I am doing a genealogy do over at the moment and starting to add all my data into Legacy with correct sources etc. What citation method is used mainly in Australia? On Trove, we can choose APA, MLA or Harvard/Australian which is the one I have been using on my previous database.

I know the Americans usually use Chicago which is in the book by Elizabeth Shown Mills but I would prefer to use the most commonly used one in Australia.

My Blog: http://suewyatt.edublogs.org/

PS I am running a comment challenge on the blog at the moment.
