Following http://www.texdev.net/2010/03/08/biblatex-numbered-citations-as-footnotes/ I made the following minimal example, that put the full citation in a margin note for the first time, when using biblatex-chicago authordate style:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[citetracker=true,ibidtracker=false,authordate]{biblatex-chicago}
\bibliography{biblatex-examples}
\makeatletter
\DeclareCiteCommand{\parencite}[\mkbibparens]
  {\usebibmacro{cite:init}%
   \usebibmacro{prenote}}
  {\usebibmacro{citeindex}%
   \usebibmacro{notefullcite}%
   \usebibmacro{cite}}
  {}%\setunit{\multicitedelim}
  {\usebibmacro{postnote}}

\newbibmacro*{notefullcite}{%
  \ifciteseen
    {}
    {\nopunct\unspace\marginpar{%
    \usedriver{}{%
        \thefield{entrytype}}.}}}
\makeatother
\begin{document}

Text \parencite{hammond}.

Text \parencite{cotton,hammond}.

Some filler text \parencite{cotton}.

Some text\parencite{cotton}.

Text \parencite{cotton,hammond}.

\end{document}

But with this code, before the first time a parencite is used for a citation, biblatex put a extra space after "(".

enter image description here

I tried to find the origin of this space, but I failed. I hoped that the \unspace remove it but not. I think this space is generated by \printnames from the cmsbracketname macro, but I don't know what to do =[.

I'm using:

Your link doesn't seem to work. I get a Error establishing a database connection message. –  Thorsten Sep 30 '11 at 5:13
    
Uhh, it's become offline after I posted the question. The contents is basically the same as the answer from Audrey from tex.stackexchange.com/questions/20637/… –  kazuo Sep 30 '11 at 5:19

Use the following definition:

\newbibmacro*{notefullcite}{%
  \ifciteseen%
    {}%
    {\marginpar{%
    \usedriver{}{%
        \thefield{entrytype}}\finentry}}}

Here the complete example with the result:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[citetracker=true,ibidtracker=false,authordate]{biblatex-chicago}
\bibliography{biblatex-examples}

\DeclareCiteCommand{\parencite}[\mkbibparens]
  {\usebibmacro{cite:init}%
   \usebibmacro{prenote}}
  {\usebibmacro{citeindex}%
   \usebibmacro{notefullcite}%
   \usebibmacro{cite}}
  {}%\setunit{\multicitedelim}
  {\usebibmacro{postnote}}

\newbibmacro*{notefullcite}{%
  \ifciteseen%
    {}%
    {\marginpar{%
    \usedriver{}{%
        \thefield{entrytype}}\finentry}}}

\begin{document}

Text \parencite{hammond}.

Text \parencite{cotton,hammond}.

Some filler text \parencite{cotton}.

Some text\parencite{cotton}.

Text \parencite{cotton,hammond}.

\end{document}
