1930 United States Census not fully indexed
I was looking for my family in the 1930 census and could not find them. I then went to Ancestry and searched there and was able to locate them.
After locating them on Ancestry I used the family search catalog to find the correct enumeration district in the state and was able to see the same page on Family Search.
I noticed that on this page in this district they have only a few records indexed and not the whole page. My family was one of those not indexed. As an example here is the url for my families page.
As you can see only some names are indexed.
Is there a way for me to report pages that are not completely indexed because I have come across this situation multiple times. Are there any plans to reindex the 1930 census.
In the meantime I am using RecordSeek to attach the 1930 Census page to my ancestor.
If the url doesn't work you can view the 1930 census page I attached to L494-VVQ
I have noticed the exact same thing.
E.g., https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GR4D-CVK. Only six people that are listed on this page are in the index.0
@TammyHardy1, I do see that there appears to be only a few names indexed on the 1930 United States census page, as you've indicated. It appears that only the 3 names of the Perry W Strickland family were indexed.
We make this assumption because only these names appear in the Image Index, below the census page. However, when I search the 1930 United States Census Collection, in FamilySearch, I am able to find Della Tilling and her son Ralph Strickland. See https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?f.collectionId=1810731&q.birthLikeDate.from=1881&q.birthLikeDate.to=1886&q.birthLikePlace=Ohio&q.givenName=Della&q.surname=Tilling.
To find Della Tilling by searching the Collection requires that her census record be indexed; which makes the mystery to be why it does not appear in the Image Index. I will forward your issue to the appropriate team for review and resolution of this mystery. I wish that I could suggest when the problem will be fixed; but, unfortunately, due to a large backlog of issues, it is impossible to do so.
Because you are able to find the record details page when searching the 1930 United States census Collection, you can attach the census record as a Source to your ancestor; however, doing so with RecordSeek is also a solution.0
