Do You Have Every Ancestor in Every Census?

Every so often I review various relatives and realize that I'm "missing" one or another in a certain census record. Sometimes I still don't find them, but other times I discover that when I originally looked for them I must not have really looked all that hard.


  1. When I took Genealogy 101, the mantra was, "Find EVERY ancestor and EVERY SIBLING of EVERY ancestor in EVERY census."

  2. Finding those 'missing' people should get easier with time, as transcription error corrections are constantly being sent to Ancestry and FindMyPast. In my experience, FindMyPast makes the correction within a day or two.
