DocNumbers are the actual document number listed on the document 
itself.  This is NOT an arbitrary number that we have assigned to the 
document.  The Digital Image number in the database is the number of the 
digital image for that document.  This is number given by the computer 
when the images were unloaded from the camera.  It is only for reference 
to ease in the facilitation of finding the images easily.

As to citing the source.  You would site it just as you would for  any 
other LDS document that you find using the  Mill's models and in the 
description you add the information regarding where the transcription 
appeared in the Termini Imerese Certificate Database online at
