Question: Why are only some of the family names listed in the details on the index? How can I locate the entire family? How do I know if I have the entire family?
Answer: If a family group began at the end of a census page but some of the children were listed at the top of the next census page, those children were not compiled with the rest of the family. Use the Advanced Search feature to search by the name of the parent. This will yield separate records for the children but by comparing the names of parents, it is possible to assemble the family.
