Don’t Cite What You’ve Not Used

If you have not seen a document or record yourself, do not list it as your source. “My cousin looked at the marriage record and said it says Blah” does not mean that you looked at it and it said “Blah.” There’s always a chance you cousin is incorrect. Look up the document yourself.
