      I’m wondering if it’s possible to add Canadian census dates to your drop down date selector? That way doing Canadian census dates they are as consistent as the US/UK ones without having to verify. Some are only for certain provinces but that doesn’t matter as it’ll be obvious when selecting the year. I show below “national” for your info, whether or not yo want to include.

      1861 January 14, 1861 (national)
      1871 April 2, 1871 (national)
      1881 April 4, 1881 (national)
      1891 April 6,1891 (national)
      1901 March 31, 1901 (national)
      1906 June 24, 1906
      1911 June 1, 1911 (national)
      1916 June 1, 1916
      1921 June 1, 1921 (national)
      1931 or later >>> not required as it’ll not be available until 2023 earliest

      There are earlier ones that could be included or not:
      1825 Lower Canada (Quebec) taken from June 20 to September 20, 1825
      1831 Lower Canada (Quebec) taken from June 1 to October 1, 1831.
      1842 Canada West (Ontario) returns were supposed to be completed by February 1, 1842.
      1851 January 12, 1852 (delays led to the late enumeration of the 1851 Census).

      I’ll look into the possibility before the kiwitrees 3.0 release.
      My initial concern is only that the existing dates are part of the larger Census Assistant code structure. It might not be practical to introduce just the dates alone. I’ll know better when I’ve looked at the code.

      If it’s a five minute job I’ll happily do it.

      That was on my mind too. I came up with a “procedure” for doing censuses (?????) but that part – the dates – get me.

      You’re in luck! It was a 5 minute job and can be done in isolation from the main templates. Copy the attached file (removed from its zip folder) to /modules_v3/GEDFact_assistant/_CENS/ to replace the existing file.

      I have not included the 1825, 31, or 42 dates. The code as currently written will only work with a single day, not a range. Those can be added if you can settle on a date.

      If you want to add those, open this file and you will see where they belong (around line 72). The format is pretty obvious, except that the year part of the date ‘value’ has to be one digit out because it counts from 0 not 1. So enter June, for example, as ‘5’ not ‘6’.

      Thanks so much, kiwi. Just got the email so will download and add. The older date ranges aren’t important, I just included them for your reference should someone ask where they are. I created Excel templates for every US/Canadian census (within the range I need) and plop in the info for the family. take a snapshot and use that for the image file as a “replica” to support the text. I like seeing the questions in full and having the names as they appear in the census, not as they appear in my GEDCOM. To keep me “synced” to who they are, I add the REFN number. The drop down census dates I use for the entry, the exact date/date range in the spreadsheet.

      kiwi,
      Just another thank you for the Canadian census dates. I’m doing a lot of catch-up entries and having the date fill in saves me trying to figure out each one.
