I would like to add 2 Irish Censuses (1901 and 1911) to the Census Assistant but I don't know where to start. It would be great if there was a guide that I could use. Any help would be appreciated.

Each census definition is in a separate file.

For example, the 1901 Census of England/Wales is here:

github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/blob/mai...susOfEngland1901.php

Each file has a corresponding test script. For example,

github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/blob/mai...fEngland1901Test.php

Even if you are not a PHP programmer, these files should be simple enough that you can copy/paste/edit them to create the Irish censuses.

Thanks very much for guiding me to those files. I am far from a programmer so I needed to spend time at it but I have gotten it working now.

If you want to share these, they can be added to the next release.
