The fact that a household is not listed may mean that they were missed =
or that that the head was away. Although most of the 1848 Census was =
completed in 1848, some of the records were created in 1849. An =
individual may be enumerated in more than one location. Each county was =
supposed to collect the same data but the format differs >from one place =
to another because the government did not provide forms. In some cases =
the recorder created his own hand-drawn form. Because the census was =
conducted over a period of more than one year, it is also very possible =
that there are additional pages that were created at a different time =
and have not yet been located.

A posting on Oct. 1 contained images of Jewish census >from =hernadczentandras. I did not see my g'g'grandfather listed, though we =
believe he was born there in 1847, Samuel Goldman, son of Moshe Goldman. =
Was this an incomplete census of Jewish families? Any other ideas why =his family would not have been listed?

Hernadszentandras (Szent Andras) in this county for those who are =
