Interviews and personal communication always begins with the person being interviewed, followed by the person conducting the interview. If identifying information about the person is needed, it can be added in parentheses after the name.
They are usually only listed in foot/endnotes unless it is published somewhere.
Listed below are both the foot/endnote and the bibliography entry, in that order. Foot/endnotes receive a first line (one tab or .5" indent, which should be automatic in Word), and the bibliography receives a hanging indent. Be sure you are looking at the correct one.

Manuscripts are treated differently than other materials. Normally the specific piece is cited only in the foot/endnote. What is cited in the bibliography is the archive and collection it was retrieved from, unless only one item from an archive is cited. In that case cite the specific piece in the bibliography as well.
There is no uniform way to format manuscripts, so include as much information on the location and identification as possible and use that form consistently. Below is an example of the type of information you should be looking for. If the depository is a well-known institution, the city can be omitted. Dates can be Month Day, Year or, to avoid confusion, Day Month Year.

This includes records of congress or reports issued by a department or committee, court cases, and acts of Congress. Legal material can be very complicated to cite if you aren’t familiar with it. The Chicago Manual of Style suggests if you need a lot of legal documents cited that you should reference The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation or the ALWD Citation Manual: A Professional System of Citation.
Like manuscripts, legal materials are generally cited in foot/endnotes only.
