Family Fact - Residence

Post by ColinMc » 05 Oct 2019 15:51

I can't work out how (assuming it is possible) to enter a Residence fact as a Family fact. I've got sources quoting where husband and wife lived.

I'm assuming it is possible to enter the fact as a family one, but how.

I'd advise you to steer clear of the Family Residence and Census facts until you fully understand the implications of using them - there have been a number of discussions of options over the years including https://www.fhug.org.uk/forum/viewtopic ... 01&p=61320# which you might want to review.

OK I've had a look, I'll enter manually for husband and wife in this case

I don't bother with Residence Facts for census data etc. as the details of the address are contained within the census etc fact itself, it seems pointless duplication to me. Others may disagree though.

"Residence" tends to indicate a person's habitual home
"Census" is where you happen to be on Census night
(A distinction that I think Ancestry ignores)

But that said I tend not to bother with a separate Residence fact for each census record - but if someone is recorded as a Visitor in a Census I put that in the Census Fact Note.
