# Remove “see n. 1” from footnotes biblatex

Biblatex is formatting my footnotes like so:

I would like to remove the "see n. 1" or "see n. 30". I'm using the historian package, MWE:

documentclass{article}
\usepackage[margin=3cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{setspace}\doublespacing
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage [american]{babel}
\usepackage [english=american] {csquotes}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex,style=historian,sorting=nty,
autocite=footnote, babel=hyphen,
mincrossrefs=1,usetranslator=true,printseries]{biblatex}
\bibliography{bib.bib}
\setlength\bibitemsep{2\itemsep}
\setlength\bibhang{30pt}
\renewcommand{\cite}{\footcite}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{bib.bib}

@book{service,
keywords = {secondary},
title = {Trotsky: A Biography},
author = {Robert Service},
}

@book{pipes,
keywords = {secondary},
title = {A Concise History of the Russian Revolution},
author = {Richard Pipes},
}
\end{filecontents}

\begin{document}
First time cited.\cite[42]{service} First time cited.\cite[24]{pipes}

Second time cited.\cite[42]{service} Second time cited.\cite[24]{pipes}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


P.S. this is unrelated, but I'd also like to change the title of the bibliography from References to Bibliography.

• Please add to your question the entries for service and pipes so we can quickly test your example. – Gonzalo Medina Feb 5 '15 at 0:49
• @GonzaloMedina Done – Elliot Gorokhovsky Feb 5 '15 at 0:56
• Try printnoterefs=false as option, see p. 5 of the biblatex-historian documnetation. – moewe Feb 5 '15 at 1:51
• For your PS question try \printbibliography[title=\bibname]. With the title option one can override the default heading. The default heading for articles (and article-like classes) is "References" (stored in \refname), while for reports and books it's "Bibliography" (stored in \bibname). – moewe Feb 5 '15 at 1:57
• I get a different output from your example code! See imgur.com/1oLVqYE. Do you get the output in the posted image using your exact code? – Gonzalo Medina Feb 5 '15 at 2:08

biblatex-historian has an option for suppressing the "see note" string:

printnoterefs=false


See p. 5 of the biblatex-historian documentation.

The title option to \printbibliography lets you change the title

\printbibliography[title=\bibname]


The default heading for articles (and article-like classes) is "References" (stored in \refname), while for reports and books it's "Bibliography" (stored in \bibname).
