Ignoring the Rules?

Sometimes ancestors might appear in records where they are "not supposed to."

Recently while using draft registration cards for men in Georgia born between 1 July 1924 and 31 December 1924, I ran across a card for a man born on 13 September 1925. It was marked "cancelled," but still appeared with the other cards.

Sometimes things that are not supposed to be, are.

  1. My ancestor was enumerated in the 1890 Union vets census. However his name was crossed out since he served in the Confederate army. Had this mistake not been made, I wouldn't know where his residence was at that point in time!
