Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Census ~ (5) Create Repository Link


In the same way that a Source cites the derivation of one or more Facts, a Repository cites the owner of one or more original Source documents.

The ability to create a Repository link was not available in Version 1.1 and can be disabled in later versions with Tools > Options > General settings.

Watch the associated Create Repository Link tutorial video.

UK 1901 Census records are lodged with the General Register Office of The National Archives at Kew.

So to cite this as the Repository, use the Link a repository… option.

In the Repository window select Link a new repository to this source.
Enter the Name as General Register Office, the Address as The National Archives, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 4DU and the Telephone as 020 8876 3444.
Click OK to close the window.

Alternatively, the Repository could cite an online genealogy website, such as Ancestry UK or Find My Past, from where the census source records were downloaded.

Other UK Census records would simply link this existing Repository to the Source.
