up. Start with the 1920 Census. Have the librarian help you find the soundex
spelling of the name which will look something like: K-122 etc. Then look in
the census book for the correct microfilm for that particular soundex. The
microfilm will be an alphabetical index of each soundex name. Find the
correct soundex on the film, there may be many on one film and search for
the last name you are looking for and then the first name. If you are lucky
to find the correct name, THEN you can go seach the actual census using the
information on the index to find the exact microfilm that has his census.
