Any way to add source to multiple people.

If I am adding a new family (parents and multiple children) and they are all on lets say the 1850 census can I add to source to all at once or do I have to do it individually?

Hi Chris

There is a way to do that in the "source help files"

Repeated use of the same source in different profiles

If you are using the same source on multiple profiles, especially if you have more information about the source than can comfortably fit in a traditional citation — such as multiple websites or repositories where it might be found — or you may want to collaborate with others who are using that source, you may want to create a free-space profile of it. SeeProfiles of Sources.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for sharing that. It looks like that could be useful. It also gave me a few ideas.
But you'd still need to add a link to that source to each profile, manually.
