Re: [AL] Area location by Census
In Response To: [AL] Area location by Census ()
Very often the districts change from census year to census year. So, what is Beat 14 in 1880 may not necessarily be Beat 14 in 1870. Sometimes when I can not find the family, I search for the children, or search for the neighbors that you saw in 1880. A lot of times in the 1870 census first initials were used. Try using wild card searches.
Do you have a family that any of us could assist you with?
