In Reply to: Census events and how the cite source by Richard Hole of 4828

I just discovered an easy way to enter the same citation (source) to multiple individuals.

I create a source ex: 1880 US Census Greene County Missouri
Author: US Department of Commerce Federal Census Bureau and then enter the repository

Then I add this source to the first individual, adding the specific information in the Citation Detail and the Actual text.

Then I use the memorize citation button(copy)below the actual text and image button to memorize the full citation,

Then I go to the next individual that is included in this citation and use the clipboard button (paste) to add the source to all the rest of the individuals.

It really makes entering the data alot faster.

PS. I am wondering about the Title of the Census entries.
I am getting a long list of census sources because I am including the County and State for each one. I am trying to decide whether to just make one entry for the 1880 US Census and put the County and State in the individual citation.

No followups yet
