Stub Family Number

**'''[[(FamiliesWiki/Stub)Family Number]]''':

This is a stub for a census event in an individual's record.

On the actual census form, the column may be headed FM# (1900).

This is the Family Number of the families at a dwelling in the order in which they were enumerated. It is not an apartment or floor number. Where only a single family is in a dwelling, this number ought to be 1, but sometimes is omitted.

This is not very useful except in cases that more than one family occupy the same building. In that case it may help verify which individuals are considered part of the same family.
