  2. Relationships in US Census

    Those of you, like me, that that use something like the Betty Frain method, you have many roles for census tags. I have always wondered if there was a "complete' list of the relationships used so that I could expand my tags to include "all possible" roles. Recently, I volunteered to index for the Family Search Labs project and found that their software had a drop-down box for entering the relationship when indexing census forms. I extracted the list and it is presented below. I find it interesting that several of the relationships seem more like occupations. Does anyone have any observations on this? Anyway, here is the list, perhaps you will find it intersting if not useful.
