Unable to Find the 1860 United States Federal Census for Milwaukee Wisconsin
I have tried to locate the 1860 US Federal Census for an individual by the name of Wilhem Jens. His age was 27, birth year 1833, gender Male, Birth place Mecklenburg,
home in 1860 Milwaukee Ward 9, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I have located this census record in Ancestry, but have searched numerous ways in FamilySearch and I'm unable to find this record.
Is this census record available in FamilySearch?
Thanks for your help.
There is a way to get the 1960 Census record attached to your family member from Ancestry.com. It is too complicated to explain to you in a message. I would suggest you contact Family Search Support. You can contact Support by click on the ? mark with a circle around it at the top right of the page, this will open a window, on the bottom right you will see "Contact Us", click on it and you can get the phone number and call them and they can work with you and get it done.0
Yes, the record is available. The difficulty in finding it was due to the Index showing Iens surname.
