I have been working on the review families step in the 1950 Census. The screen clearly shows a father, mother and four children. She was able to review only three of the children. What is the procedure she should follow?
I put in my maiden name to review and amazingly got my older brother (who was the youngest family member at the time of the 1950 Census) at the top of the page. He was being grouped with another family with a different last name. Unfortunately, I couldn't go to the page before to actually do MY Family (how cool would that have been!), so I had to leave him looking as if he didn't belong to any family.
What do I do in cases like that. Whoever did my family apparently didn't notice him on the following page. How do I correct that?
@MPS1 and @Renee Daw Callister The best thing to do when the families aren't grouped correctly is to report it in the Feedback button along the top of the page and the Skip Household to move on. Sometimes there are these glitches and we need to report them so they are corrected. Thank you for paying such close attention and for all your hard work.
Whomever reviewed my family in the 1950 census did not correct the spelling of last name from Sekes to Sikes. In addition initials for my father and me are both incorrect. I am a volunteer and have tried to fine a way to correct it but Texas is complete for names. What can I do now?
It is good that you are checking on these things.
Are you currently doing Family Review in FamilySearch on these records? If so, you have the opportunity to change the names to the correct spelling as you are reviewing the family.
If you aren't able to pull up the records while doing Family Review, then once the Texas records are published on FamilySearch, you can go in and change the names there.
If you are looking at the names in Ancestry, those records are the Computer Aided Index, but will be updated as the records are reviewed.
I hope that this helps.
