Re: [BostonAreaTUG] How do you enter a "Boarder"
There are a couple of ways that this can be done, as Bob pointed out the
person can be listed as a witness to the census. Another more advanced
way is to add a new role to the census called boarder and design an
appropriate sentence for that role such as: [W] appeared on the 1930
Federal Census <of [LCI],>< [LCN],> [LS] in the household of [P] <and
[PO]>, as a boarder <[WM]><[M]>.
Terry Reigel, has good information about using roles in sentences at:
I always add boarders and other unrelated people to my data base, there
is no telling when that boarder may end up marring one of the children
in the household.
Be sure to add the boarder as an unrelated person to your database.
Hope that this helps.
