Could anyone please help me? I use RM4 and am very please with it, but am really confused as to what information goes in the source records. If anyone has any census they have downloaded from Ancestry, please could you let me know what you put into each row/tab regarding repository etc? Many thanks in advance

census records have a reference number at the bottom. If you look at the record not the original image it is written out for you.
For example my ancestor Ada Bullivant in 1901 census at the bottom of the record has source citation
RG13 Piece 4384 Folio 70 page 15.
This is the important reference because anyone can use this reference to find it again in the records.
