City/Township Not Indexed for 1920 Census
Does anyone know why the City/Township was not indexed for the 1920 Census? For some reason, only the County and State were indexed in the Event Place field. I can't tell if it's every state, but it seems to be for all counties in Pennsylvania and at least some of Illinois and a few other states. And it's only the 1920 Census. It's really a pain to have to enter a correction for every person in the record, as it maps to the Residence field when you attach the record. Here's an example.
It is indexed at the top level:0
@Áine Ni Donnghaile, that's waypointed, not indexed. Different species. (They're also sometimes called "breadcrumbs".)
@Mark.B.Hansen, is this a recent change, or has the 1920 census index always been missing the borough/town level? I ask because there have been background changes or processes that have corrupted or removed data in other collections (such as Hungary Catholic baptisms) lately.0
I don't think that has been any different over time, @Julia Szent-Györgyi.0
@ Julia Szent-Györgyi Thanks, Julia. It's always been that way, as far as I can tell. And it's only the 1920 Census that has this problem. All other U.S. Censuses have the City/Township indexed. I've seen it in all the Pennsylvania counties of the 1920 Census I have been working with. But I just saw it in Ohio yesterday. I assume these records were indexed years ago. (Interestingly, it seems to me that the Census indexers for Ancestry.com are different than the Census indexers on FS, as I have been able to locate ancestors in Census indices on Ancestry that FS can't find.)0
