Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Census ~ (6) Save to Family Historian


This is the final step, so before committing the data to be saved, just check it over carefully.

After the data has been saved, it can be examined in Family Historian, and modified if necessary.

Watch the associated Save to Family Historian tutorial video.

Save Entry to File

When satisfied, click the Save File button near the left of the toolbar, or use File > Save Entry To File.

For each person’s Birth Event, where better Date or Place details are suggested by this Census, a popup window offers options to accept or reject the suggestions.

The suggested birth Date is calculated from the Age column in the Census Grid, and the birth Place is derived from the Where Born column.
Various Birth Event options can be selected by using Tools > Options… > General settings and Census settings.

Since the CHILDS family has no Birth Events recorded, choose Create birth event with suggested date and place, and click the Next > button for each person, and finally click the Finish button.

Then, and only then, will Ancestral Sources commit the data entry to the GEDCOM database.

Birth Event Suggestions

If you use Tools > View Log Files… it show a comprehensive list of all the changes made.

Finally, close Ancestral Sources by using the File > Exit option.
