Recording a Person Enumerated on a Census
 
1.  From the person screen for the person enumerated on the census and select the TAG menu option on the top of the screen. 
2.  Choose "Add Tag from List".  Then "Cen-Enum" 
3.  Fill in the spaces as in the table below.  

Time saving hints:  

  • After filling in the Head of Household you can use the F3 key to fill in the P2 , place  and source field.
  • After recording the first Enumerated person for any given census you can use the F3 key for all fields, except for the memo.  It even works for the Witness Field if you choose to enter an ID number.

P1: 
  • Person Enumerated on Census
P2:
  • Number of the Census Person identifying this Census Entry 
  • This creates a linked entry to this person from both the Individuals Person Screen and the Census's Person screen. 
  • It allows for a list of all  people on the census to appear on the Census' Person screen.
Date:
  • Date Census was taken
Sort date: 
  • I use this to put the people in the order I want, I will set the date for the person enumerated to whatever I feel is appropriate to put the people in the order I want them in 
  • For instance I may set the wife's date the day before her children to ensure that she is listed first in the Tag Lists.. 
  • Also, if you have more than one family in this census that were enumerated on the same day you can use this sort date to put the FAMILIES that were in the Census in a certain order (see example for individual detail report).
  • Memo: 
    • This contains all the information specific to this person. 
    • The format used is as follows: "specific information."||"name as spelled in census".  In the TMG manual terms this is "M1"||"M2" 
    • The Sentence structure inserts the exact spelling of the name in the appropriate place in a Genealogy report.
    • See example in the Genealogy Report
    The Source
    • Citation is the same as  for any tag.
    Witnesses: 
    • The Witness for this Tag is the Head of Household. 
    • This creates a link between the Head of Household and the person enumerated with the head of household.
    • This allows the Head of Household's name and the fact that they were the Head of Household for this census family to appear on the enumerated individual's Person screen (see example for: Enumerated Individual's Person screen).
