JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Your thoughts on birthplace variations listed in US Census forms #general

The answer to any query about what is put down as answers to questions on
US Census forms is to look at the set of instructions given to the census
enumerators. Those are all online (1850 through 1950) at
https://usa.ipums.org/usa/voliii/tEnumInstr.shtml

Of course that assumes the census taker follows the formal guidelines!!
