Subject: [GENBOX] Census Tip

I prefer to list all members of the household with ages, sex, occupation,
and place of birth somewhere in the footnote as opposed to using witnesses.
I have been adding this to the annotation field. However, this means
copying & pasting the info for each member of the household. Today it
dawned on me that when I define the source (if you are using a source
specific to a particular HoH for a given year instead of "generic" sources)
that I can put the information into the General Notes section of the Source
and add the [SOURCE NOTES] variable to the Primary Citation formatting.
Duh! Works beautifully.
Thought maybe someone else could use this tip.
