I want to set the place type as “prefecture” (for example, Chiba Prefecture in Japan) but there is no option for this in Gramps so for now I am using “Province” which seems like the next closest thing.
Is there some way to create a new type in Grandpa called “Prefecture”, or some better workaround than using “Province” instead?
Citation Vol/Page: the URL address
Citation Note: the text of the obituary
You could differentiate between "The Argus (online)" and "The Argus"
or "The Argus (print)"
The print version of the citation would contain issue/page
information. I would still transcribe the text into a note. The note
is what you and your family will want. The other information just
shows where you got the information.
The main goal is to provide enough information so that you or anyone
else can find the same information again.
There are as many ways to configure the above as there are gramps users.
Is the Source the Newspaper? or is the Source the Newspaper Issue?
Whatever you do not put in the Source gets put into the Citation.
A better example are census records. Is the Source "Census", or Census
by County, or Census by Country and Year, or Census by Country, Year
and some smaller geographical region? Census would be 1 record. Census
by Country would be a few source records. The more information you add
to the Source, the more Source records you will have. It is a balance
that you need to find for yourself.
