Re: Lumper or Splitter for one name study

Hi All


Just another perspective. I lump items if I am going to use it for 1 fact/event such as Birth/Death/Marriage. If I am going to use it to support multiple facts/events such as a residence record which is attached to multiple people for a census then I have create a source using the Census Source. This is so I can alter only one record and it will affect all the people.

Thanks everyone,
that confirms where i think I am. I wouldnt want to do anything other than split where I have a specific source such as a certificate and image but it does seem to feel like splitting an index is perhaps a step too far so interesting that others have taken this approach.
