Gloucester, Massachusetts[edit]

Hi Melissa, thanks for your edits to the Gloucester, Massachusetts article. I've added a footnote to Cape Ann Museum's page about White–Ellery House to the text you've added; for help on doing this, see Wikipedia:Referencing for beginners with citation templates. However, I've removed the external link you added to the museum's website, as external links in Wikipedia should be directly related to the subject of the article, so a link in the Gloucester article should be related to the city of Gloucester, nothing more, nothing less. Wikipedia has a set of pages specifically designed for cultural institutions like museums that you may be interested in, at Wikipedia:GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums).

Also, the links that you added at Fitz Henry Lane are exactly what we're looking for in the external links section: sites that are directly relevant to the subject of the article and contain things that the Wikipedia article can never have. However, I've moved the reference you added at John Frederick Kensett to a new "Further reading" section, because the references section is for listing works that have been used to make the Wikipedia article. There's no problem with the reference you added there, but keep in mind Wikipedia's guideline about citing your own works; it can be controversial when done to excess.
