Thanks all for the input.  I believe that this is the approach I
should use:  (Looking for comments and answers to the two questions
below.)

1. An Event (such as birth, death, marriage, census etc.) will have
one or more supporting Source references (each of which refers to a
Source object)

2. Use Source Reference attributes to collect data not in standard
fields. (e.g. Certificate number)

What is a source reference attribute? There is only source data. The source reference has only notes.

Benny

Note: Previously I used Event Attributes for this, but I'm changing my mind.

3. For cyberspace sources, add a Source Reference attribute to hold
the URL of the source (e.g. a PDF file at a government archive
website)

4. When possible and practical, save copies of documents on my
computer and create Media objects for them.  Link the Media Objects to
the Source gallery.  (This way the Source object will have links to
every document I have from that source.)

Note: Previously I used the Event gallery for this, but I'm changing my mind.

***Question*** Should I store the URL to the archive in the Media
Object Attributes as well?  But then there will be two copies of the
URL, since I saved one in step 3!  Hmmmm....

***Question 2*** Do you put the same Source info for the Media object?
 But then you have it twice...once for the Event and once for the
Media object.

5. Source objects have one or more Repositories.
