I found my family in the 1950 census but I was not inlcuded. I discovered that I was on the next page of the census. I also noted that my grandfather and an uncle were noted as widowed when they should have been listed as married.
@Jim Challis Sorry your question went so long without an answer. Currently, the 1950 US Census only permits corrections to names. But, within the next few months, we hope to see the ability to edit every field in that index, including fixing family groupings and errors in relationships. So, check back from time to time to see if editing opportunities have expanded.
TThanks for answering my question.
I have been able to correct some obvious indexing errors on other sources but I am stumped on how to edit this one. The indexer ignored the surnames of the “children” who actually would be step children to the father.
I have left this note on the source.
”Mabel Margaret (Morey Mattson Luby) Reynolds had 2 daughters Marilyn M Mattson and Evelyn Luby from her previous marriages before marrying Clifford C Reynolds.”
Is there a way to change Evelyn Mattson to Evelyn Luby as it is actually enumerated? She is still living so I didn’t attach her on the record.
I don’t know how to avoid this . The source linker wants to connect Clifford Reynolds to Mabel’s previous husband George Gust Mattson1907-1977 GH7T-2XV
I would love someone to fix this up and also then explain and show me how .
To link to Mabel's other husband, Clifford Reynold's, click and hold on the black < between the two names. It should bring up his name for you to select. Then below it will only show the children (if any) linked to Mabel and Clifford.
As for Evelyn's surname, there is currently an issue with editing surnames in the 1950 US Census when there were multiple surnames in the same household. If you edit one, it has been changing all of the others as well. The software engineers are aware of this problem.
