BMD and Census Check query

Postby steveflanuk » 11 Oct 2017 11:57


Firstly, apologies if this is the wrong place to put this, but it didn't seem to fit in elsewhere on the forum.

I have created a quick BMD Census check query which, hopefully, some of you may find useful. This is not intended in any way to be a replacement for any other queries or plug-ins. Personally I use it just to help point me to where I need to possibly focus any future research.

The query lists all individuals in a project (plus a few other details) and any BMD/Census entries, indicating whether an entry exists and if there is some missing information (e.g. partial dates for births). For census entries, it checks to see if there is a census event for the year in question (including the 1939 register) and, if not, estimates whether that person was possibly alive at the time of the census. Full details of what the results mean is given in the 'Description' on the 'General' tab.

There are a large number of columns, however, I wrote this more for exporting to Excel. You can, of course, hide any columns you wish to by selecting the column in the 'Columns' tab and then choosing 'Hidden' from the 'Type:' drop down menu at the bottom of the screen.

Steve, the best option is to add it to the Knowledge Base > Downloads and Links.
Follow the link to Knowledge Base > How to Add Downloads and Links.
And then to Knowledge Base > Add a Downloadable File.
It should all be fairly self explanatory, but if you need advice then ask before clicking Submit Download.
You cannot break anything, and any tidying up can be done by any of the Moderators.

To see what other downloads look like, see Knowledge Base > Downloads and Links ~ Query Type: Individual.
