Having difficulty in working out how to transfer Census info to my tree when it is spread over 2 pages ? :-S

Page 2 is OK as one of the relevant people are at the top of the page but the rest of the family are the last 3 names on the previous page and it keeps matching with the first name on the page-do you just ignore that ?

Hope this makes sense to someone :-)

If they are all members of the same family living at a single address then presumably they will all appear together on the transcribed version of the census.

Why not copy the transcription and then paste it as a note into FTM. If necessary you can post the transcription into each of the family members "Notes" section.

This is a bug that goes back yonks. You will just have to enter those on the other page by hand. Families are often split across pages. They may also be found at more than one address on the same census.

hint: always look carefully at the whole page of a census return 'cos you may find future husbands, mothers-in-law, married siblings etc nearby.
