Stub Number Of Children

**'''[[(FamiliesWiki/Stub)Number of Children]]''':

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

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

This question is supposed to be asked only of women. It is supposed to be the total number of children she has ever borne, including those not living.

This stub can be omitted for males and young girls if the cell is blank. If the cell is not blank there has obviously been some kind of error, and the stub should be entered with the value shown in the cell with a note stub explaining the situation.

Do not omit this stub for females apparently of childbearing age or greater. Leave the stub blank if the cell is blank and enter 0 if the cell has 0.
