What is going on with the 1850 US Census?
Does anybody know what is going on with the 1850 US Census? All the names now appear out of order, so the head of the household is a lot of times not listed first. New citations have also been created for these records and it lists the 2 people that are listed first, which a lot of times are children of the head of the household! I use the citations on other sites for research and not only do they not contain a clickable link anymore, but the citation makes no sense now. I sure hope that there are not plans to do this with other census records!
@km41566 Would you provide us with a URL or 2 so we can see the problems you have seen in the 1850 Census?0
Here is one example:
United States Census, 1850", database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZY6-CG6 : Sun Mar 12 22:42:15 UTC 2023), Entry for Mathew Abbott and Penelope Abbott, 1850.
The head of the household is William Abbott, but he appears at the bottom of the household list. I have seen the same thing over and over again for Georgia census records for 1850.0
