Showing census information

Postby gwilym'smum » 11 Jul 2018 15:52

One of the things I am very keen on is following my families through the censuses. I can do this very easily in my paper files as at the bottom of each individual sheet is a list of all the people who appear with the individual in given censuses, with the address and reference of course. Those who only like to deal with computers might find this a very labour intensive task, which to be honest it is but the result is that I can see the comings and goings, with whom, throughout a period at a glance and see who has disappeared. In AS this is done in the auto text but only for one census and is not reproduced in FH but I want this format duplicated for each individual either in the property box or on a tab for each person with the censuses side by side. Hope this makes sense. Is there any means of producing this format please?

I assume you have recorded Census entries using AS and Method 1 Source records.
Those Source records hold the Auto Text from AS in their Text From Source field.
So all you need is a customised version of the Individual Summary Report.
The only facts to include are the Census Events and the Sources section must include Text From Source field.
