No plans as such, but I have been thinking about it.
I enquired early on how people (kiwitrees users and wider genealogy circles) planned to record the 1939 register data. Sadly the answer was an even split between census and residence (CENS / RESI), so I didn’t pursue adding it as a census template within the Census Assistant framework.
However I have also been using it more since FMP added it as part of standard subscriptions and find myself wishing I had started initially recording it as CENS data, if only for the tidier transcription, and automatic lining of family members.
So now, whilst I could reasonably simply add it to CA, I will also need to consider how to convert all existing RESI tags and their associated citations etc. I would hope to be able to do this with a batch update tool.
Is that something you would need? If so, can you let me have a typical sample of your current GEDCOM data for a Register entry.
The other option might be to experiment with using the CA concept on other tags, such as RESI. That is something I want to do (it’s on the “long term” list here), but it’s a significant piece of work that I’m not even close to starting yet.Nigel
