    Snopes is a credible, reliable source. At the middle and high school levels, it's fine to cite it in papers. For college, you would need to stick to academic/scholarly journals and books, and official documents and records.

    Also, snopes.com can be wrong, though it usually isn't. If possible, double-check that their information is correct before citing it.

    Reliable, yes. But I wouldn't cite it for school.

    Instead, I would check the sources cited by snopes and use them as sources for your research.
