Do you have any notes in your file without the title of the source or other information to write a citation? That’s what I found when going back thru some of my old files.
The notes in question were recorded by my father on a vacation when we stopped in Salt Lake City during a family vacation.
Based on the notes, I think these are notes of marriages, but that is just a guess. I’m also guessing that the surname for everyone in the first column is Crawford. However, unless I can find the source, I don’t know for sure.
Since I do have the call number, I was hoping that I could locate the source to verify the notes. Thankfully, FamilySearch allows one to search their catalog by call number.
Using these directions, I searched the FamilySearch catalog for 974.8/V2n. This search produced a list of six books.
Unfortunately, none of these books have been digitized.
Thus, I have some notes with no idea which book they came from.

A quick search of my RootsMagic file revealed that I already have two of these couples in my file: David married Lydia Lloyd; and James married Catharine Howell. Unfortunately, I don’t have any sources for the marriage fact.
When I looked up Lydia Lloyd and Catharine Howell on FamilySearch, both had sources attached to the marriage fact. Following the links for those sources, I think I found the source attached to Catharina Howell!
Thus, I think the citation for Catharina Howell may identify the source my father used.
“Pennsylvania, County Marriages, 1885-1950,” database with images, FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q285-FBH2 : 22 July 2021), James Crawford and Catharine Howell, 2 Mar 1762; citing Marriage, Pennsylvania, British Colonial America, multiple County Clerks, Pennsylvania.
While I’m still not positive of the source my dad used, I can use the source, Pennsylvania Marriages, 1709-1940, to document these two marriages in my file.
