#1 reflect the relationship between this individual (Ann Johnson) and the Home Person, Hiram Deats. In this case there is no direct relationship (that is known at this point) between the two. The 1860 Census indicated that Ann was 25 years old at the time of the Census. This would make her birth date about 1835. That is entered in the Right Hand (RH panel) and once entered will be reflected at #2.

Continuing with citing the Source, the #3, New Source, is clicked, using an Existing Source-Citation in the New menu, the Source-Citation window is opened #4, and the first item is the Source-Citation is selected as it was the Hiram Deats household in the 1860 Census.
