Citing Ancestry.com in Legacy

Posted: 1490552557000
Classification: Query
Hello all, I am still new to legacy and have never been good with sources to start with. I am trying to make sure I do things right so they are easy to follow. My question is do you cite ancestry.com or do you cite the actual source you found on ancestry? Here is the source print out of one I tried to do. Does this look right?

Ancestry.com. Michigan, Marriage Records, 1867-1952 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2015. (Original data: Michigan, Marriage Records, 1867–1952. Michigan Department of Community Health, Division for Vital Records and Health Statistics.),
County File Number: 9075
State File Number: 4 2786
Film: 5
Film Title: Duscola 24-Shayne 24
Film Description: Alpena (1928 - 1947). Cit. Date: 26 Mar 2017.
