Try Swap­ping Names

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - CENSUS TIPS -

Peo­ple some­times con­fused the enu­mer­a­tor by giv­ing their sur­name first. This can be es­pe­cially challenging with a name like Arthur James. Try putting the first name in the sur­name box and see what hap­pens. It’s also worth re­mem­ber­ing that peo­ple used pet names, short­ened names and a va­ri­ety of mid­dle names just to con­found fu­ture fam­ily his­to­ri­ans. It’s worth play­ing around with op­tions.
