Re: 1930 census - invented people #usa #general #records

It seems from my own family that sometimes the question of who gets counted at a house was misunderstood to mean "who is there on that day" and so children who were there for daycare, or relatives just visiting were listed, and even recorded as a  daughter or son.     This also led to them appearing in the census twice, at different locations, and in one instance not appearing in the 1930 census at all because she was on a train en route to her grandparents in another state.

Can you find those children's names with corresponding ages in other records, perhaps in a later census,  with their actual parents?
