What's the Error Here?

In cleaning citations and references for the next issue of Casefile Clues, I noticed two blatant errors in this 1900 census enumeration for my great-great-grandparents. Anyone else spot it? It's got nothing to do with the names.

Subscribe now and join the discovery. Our next issue has nothing to do directly with the errors in this enumeration, but I might never have noticed them if I hadn't been cleaning up my citations.


  1. One mistake is that all but George were actually born in Germany. Also wasn't the year of immigration in the 1860's, plus didn't both husband and wife come over together?

  2. Looks like the husband and wife immigrated before they were born.
