User Created Events

The Census Plus International mod supports user created census events with full years.

Two Census for Same Year

If you have 2 census for the same year, you will need 2 distinct census events in order to display these census. For example, if you have

  • a US Federal Census for 1850 and
  • a US Federal Census Slave Schedule for the same year,

you will need to define an 1850 Slave Census event, which you will need to select for the 1850 Slave Schedule.

The following will happen if you have 2 different census event for the same year:

  • only the first event will display the Census Plus transcript if two different census are assigned to the same census event

The Census Plus transcript display on the Individual page will not display the second census event for the same year if they are both assigned to the same eventtypeID

Creating Custom Events

In the case of the 1850/1860 US Federal Census and US Slave Schedule, you should create a separate Slave Census event

Note that the mod requires that

  • census be used somewhere in the description or that you use
  • cens be used somewhere in the tag

Having two different event types, will allow the two census to display correctly provided that two different census events types are used to link the person to the same year census, as shown for the Slave Census and Other Census below.

You must select the different census event before you do the Add or Import, but more specifically before you link the person to the census transcript.


Slave Census

In the case of the US Slave Schedule, you cannot define it as 1850 Slave Schedule because the Census Plus transcript would not be found because census is not used in the event description. So it should be defined as Slave Census

The individual page will then display both the 1850 or 1860 US Census and the Slave Schedule Census Plus Slave Census Display.jpg

Other Census

In the case of the person being listed in two different census for the same year, you should create a separate Other Census event.

The individual page will then display both the Census and Other Census event
