Major enumerator errors: Lincoln Township wives were listed under their maiden name. They have been
indexed under their married names.
Minor enumerator errors: Enumerators were not selected for their penmanship and spelling skills. The poor penmanship
may have resulted in misinterpretation of the data although questionable names were cross
checked with other sources where possible. The poor spelling was rampant throughout the
census, some much worse than others and all would be classified as poor. Misspelled words
were transcribed as written so you will see many misspellings in the transcription. The index
has been corrected for spelling to make it easier to find your ancestor.
