The sentence template for the principal in the census is: 

Sentence template: [person] appeared in the census< [Desc]> <[Date]>< [PlaceDetails]>< [Place]>.

How to you change it to read [Person's name] was enumerated as the spouse/child etc of the head of the household, [Person] etc.

Thanks!

Principle role sentence template for the Census fact:

[Person] appeared in the census< [Desc]>< [Date]>< [PlaceDetails]>< [Place].

Sharee role sentence template:

Spouse role:

[ThisPerson] was enumerated as the spouse of the head of household, [Person].

Child role sentence template:

[ThisPerson] was enumerated as the child of the head of household, [Person].

[Person] is the name of the Principle and [ThisPerson] is the name of the Sharee in a Sharee's role sentence template.

Thank you Laura! That's what I had, but I thought there might be a way for "as a spouse" or "as a child" to be handled not just written in.

You can use Sharee roles in a Principle sentence, but, not in a Sharee sentence.

 

Principle sentence example:

 

[person:first] is listed<?[Spouse]| with [Person:HisHer] spouse, [spouse:Given],><?[Child]| and children, [Child:Given] [Person:Surname],>< [Place]>< in the [Date:year] census>.

 

This prints the given name for the person which has the Spouse role if that role was assigned for that fact.  It prints all the given names of all the children with the Child role divided by commas with the last child's name presided by and.

 

John is listed with his spouse, Jane, and children, Mary, Lee, Samuel and Eliza Smith< [Place]>< in the [Date:year] census>.
