Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Census Facts


This tutorial illustrates the fundamental features of capturing a Census Record and adding its details to your Family Historian database.

There is a series of videos on How to Add a Census Entry showing the key features of the tutorials.

Throughout the tutorial the notation ‘Option1 > Option2 > Option3 button’ means select menubar Option1, then Option2, and finally click the Option3 button.

Any text in Bold usually represents literal text visible somewhere in the tutorial windows.

It is feasible to copy & paste many of the data values from the tutorial scripts directly into Ancestral Sources input forms.

FIXME This tutorial is based on AS Version 2 so some features may be slightly different in later versions.
