Re: Success on Census - Reversing Names #general

This is very true. You should always try switching. I have seen several
census pages where they list the head of household as Surname, Given name
and the rest of the family as Given name, Surname. This is especially
important to use if you are looking through indexes, as the data entry
people should type the entry in exactly as it is written without making
their own interpretations.

I hope the following will help all genners. While searching on the
census through ancestry.com, we found Hyman JACOBS. However, the catch
is that we put him in as Jacob HYMAN, and up he came with all of the
children we know to

be the right ones.

Good luck to all of us!
