Issue 40 in the works--organizing a census search

Issue 40 is in the final stages of revision. It discusses my organization for another 1870 census entry I cannot find. There are several potential issues with why John Ufkes cannot be located in the census, some of which have to do with his ethnic background and some of which do not.

Having located people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and areas in the 1870 census, much of the discussion of the search for John applies to more than just people who were natives of the same area of Europe as him.

We'll see how my search was organized, both with maps and charts to help me. I simply can't type his name in a search box and find him.

Subscribe now and see how I organized my search. At $17 for 52 issues, it's a bargain.
