Hi All,

I understand that there are some peculiarities with the 1870 Census for

First of all, I believe it was performed twice, as the first attempt was
deemed unsatisfactory.

Second, it appears to me that street numbers were not listed. Is that

even if I know the exact address?

TIA for any guidance,
