Add a census event
===Add a census event===
To do this, we begin by opening up a person in gramps for editing. Next, we'll use the '+' button to add an event. An event dialog will pop up. We'll then choose the event type "Census" from the drop-down menu and add the date, which we found on the third line of the census form. In the case of my grandfatherMr. Murray, the census took place on over two days, so I should enter "from 1 April 1901 to 2 April 1901" to be accurate. Next, we will want to record the place, which is East Toronto Village, but we can do better than that. Schedule 2 for this census tells me the actual street address, so that's what we should use. Next, we will click on the "Sources" tab to add our source.
