Re: Seeking Advice for Hiring the Best Latvian Researcher #latvia

Thanks so much, Arlene.  This is very helpful.  Maybe I can ask you a more particular question.  When I last had the Latvian Archives research for me, I was displeased with the way they did their citations.  Instead of footnoting each piece of information, they put all of the source information at the end of the report, and not in the order of information given in the body of the report.  For example, they would cite one book, then just give a list of pages where various information was found in that book.  Therefore, I had no reasonable way of knowing where, specifically, they were finding each piece of data.  Is it unreasonable to ask them to not do it that way?  I want to maintain good relations, but this method of citing seemed inappropriate.
