1880 and 1870 census for Issue 42

We are looking at an immigrant family in issue 42, focusing on their 1880 and 1870 census enumerations. Additional resources are suggested and comparing the enumerations made some things more clear than they originally were.

The family had two sons with the same first and last name and issue 42 explains how that happened and how it was discovered.

As usual, our analysis really goes beyond on the ethnic group of this family. Researchers should remember that the problems of social group and class cross all borders. And it is important to remember that problem-solving and tracking your assumptions is essential regardless of where your ancestors were from.
