I haven't had time to work on my data set for some three
years now... But I'd probably handle these addresses by listing the
"family" (that is, the husband/wife as principles) and link the
children as witnesses -- rather than create an address record for
each individual.

After all, the "move" is typically the decision of the
parents, and the children are just "baggage" pulled along.
