MysteryMike,
Thanks for the great info. Can you tell me how to check census records myself?

Mari,

I have a subscription to Ancestry.com.... I find it to be an extremely valuable tool.... As you can see from what I posted, names are not always indexed correctly (or as one might think), so there is a learning curve and tricks of the trade when using the search tools...

If I get a chance I'll give you access to the images I posted, you can find a lot reading "between the lines" of census records...

Cheers
Mike
