For those who want their head of household sentence to print out each possible member of the Head of Household, I created the sentence structure to the right. You will need to create a role and sentence for each role found in a [R:ROLENAME] structure.

I used [:CR:][:TAB:][R:ROLENAME] was probably a free white male, age under 10, in [R:Head of Family]'s household, on the 1820 Census <[L]>. <[M]>

Replace the ROLENAME, with the role in the Head of Family's sentence. Replace "free white male" with the proper heading and replace "age under 10" with the proper age range.

Notice that each sex and age range has two roles, one for singular roles (one person in the role) and one for multiple roles (more than one person in the role). The role sentences for each role will read the same. So free wh male 26-45 will have the same sentence as free wh males 26-45.

[:CR:][:TAB:][R:Head of Family] was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 census <[D]> < [L]>. Based on ages, it is possible that the following were also living in the household: <[R:free wh male 0-10], a free white male, age newborn to 10 years old><, [R:free wh males 0-10], free white males, age newborn to 10 years old><, [R:free wh male 10-16], a free white male, age ten to sixteen years old><, [R:free wh males 10-16], free white males, age ten to sixteen years old> <, [R:free wh male 16-18], a free white male, age sixteen to eighteen years old><, [R:free wh males 16-18], free white males, age sixteen to eighteen years old><, [R:free wh male 16-26], a free white male, age sixteen to twenty-six years old><, [R:free wh males 16-26], free white males, age sixteen to twenty-six years old><, [R:free wh male 26-45], a free white male, age twenty-six to forty-five years old><, [R:free wh male 26-45], free white males, age twenty-six to forty-five years old><, [R:free wh male 45+], a free white male, over 45 years of age><, [R:free wh males 45+], free white males, over 45 years of age> <, [R:free wh female 0-10], a free white female, age newborn to ten years of age><, [R:free wh females 0-10], free white females, age newborn to ten years of age><, [R:free wh female 10-16], a free white female, age ten to sixteen years of age><, [R:free wh females 10-16], free white females, age ten to sixteen years of age><, [R:free wh female 16-26], a free white female, ages sixteen to twenty-six years of age><, [R:free wh females 16-26], free white females, ages sixteen to twenty-six years of age><, [R:free wh female 26-45], a free white female, ages twenty-six to forty-five years of age><, [R:free wh females 26-45], free white females, ages twenty-six to forty-five years of age><, [R:free wh female 45+], a free white female, over forty-five years of age><, [R:free wh females 45+], free white females, over forty-five years of age>.<[M]>

I also created a role called "HOF living alone" for when a person is the head of family and there is no one else living in the household. The sentence is:

[:CR:][:TAB:][R:HOF living alone] was listed as the head of a family on the 1820 census <[D]> < [L]>. <[M]>
