Enter Census (Video Tutorials)

  • Skill Level: Advanced, Intermediate, and New User
  • FH versions: V4, V5, and V6
  • In Topics: Using Ancestral Sources 

Introduction

These videos show how to add a Census entry, and each one summarises its associated scripted tutorial, which provides more explanation and references. (See the Enter Census Information tutorial scripts).

The total running time for this entire series of videos is about 18 minutes.

However, this is not representative of the time needed to enter a Census record, because it includes configuring initial settings, setting once only Options and Repository details, as well as examining Family Historian, and restoring original settings. A more realistic time would be less than 9 minutes.

These videos are based on FH Versions 3 & 4 and AS Version 2 so some features may be slightly different in later versions, but the concepts still apply.
