Introduction

Events

Residence and census are on GEDCOM 5.5 specifications :

RESI 	{RESIDENCE} 	The act of dwelling at an address for a period of time.
CENS 	{CENSUS} 	The event of the periodic count of the population for a designated
                       locality, such as a national orstate Census.
TYPE 	{TYPE}   	A further qualification to the meaning of the associated superior tag.
                       The value does not have anycomputer processing reliability. 
                       It is more in the form of a short one or two word
                       note that should be displayed any time the associated data is displayed.

Place and Address

Multiples places

There are many solutions :

  • GEDCOM 5.5 allows a sub-division on place title separated by commas.

But using a specific address as place title (or place attribute) might generate a lot of place objects on the same city or same district (no shared place object).

  • GRAMPS provides an Address tab on person editor.

But maybe an other GEDCOM issue, which could hide some useful information for genealogical searches!

  • The most effective emplacement for setting address seems to be the event editor!

Event objects are used on reports and displayed on views/tabs/dialogs. (see Why residence event and not Address?) Most places deal with events (see Place Report)

How or where could we set address on event ?

Personaly, I find the event description a good choice :

Residence Census
Event Individual or family Shared (People and Family)
Source Certificate or a card Census (Place and date)
Place no sub-division for address (city, code, county, state, country) no sub-division for address (city, code, county, state, country)
Event description Residence of Surname, Given name - address (number street) Address (number street)

On description we could use "the "header of family" as person's name on census event.

To share data

  • Gramps XML format (from Gramps to Gramps): there is no problem, descriptions on event are safe.
  • Gedcom: if the recipient's program ignores TYPE attribut (GEDCOM), then he could lose descriptions on event ...
