Census Tab Add-In Question

Post by David Potter » 23 Mar 2020 17:49

Hi Forum

I am using the Census Tab Add-in and I'm puzzled as to why an occupation (Labourer) appears in the Tab for the UK 1851 Census and yet there are no Census facts to support this? Please see attached image. If I click the Occupation from within the Tab it points to a Marriage Source describing the Occupation of a Father to one of the Couple Married. Even the Fact created doesn't have any more than this one Source. Also the Fact Date 9 Dec 1851 does not match with the Census Date for 1851.

Any ideas as to what is going on...

Stay Safe

David

That Census tab uses Data References involving mostly INDI.CENS[year=1851] and likewise for each other year, but also INDI.OCCU[year=1851], etc, for the Occupation field. So any Occupation with a Date in 1851 will get displayed.

If custom tabs allowed Expressions instead of just Data Refs then the Occupation field could have been made conditional on the existence of INDI.CENS[year=1851], but they don't, so it can't.

Thanks Mike, so there will be other records like this, I just haven't seen this before now. Coincidence I guess.

Thanks for the quick reply.
