The check marks are also Ditto marks- same previous infromation.
Please write what you see, if there were mistakes from the registrar during that time- we do not correct those mistakes.
Field Help indicates:
You should expand abbreviations or correct misspellings when you can tell what the abbreviation stands for or what the correction should be to the spelling.
Separate geographical levels of locality, from smallest to largest, with a comma. If they were given.
If the locality was not recorded or was written as a variation of the word "unknown," press Ctrl+B to mark this field blank.
In the column which says "From What State", all entries except the first are from "Wa", which is in such sloppy writing, perhaps it looked like Un to you.
Index Wa as Washington.
The departure place for the first person is Ore. Index that as Oregon.
That Country of Birth in the 1st line looks like NS for Nova Scotia? Notice on line 3, the person born in NS a citizen of Canada. (He also shows up in the 1920 census in Washington state - see below).
The Birthplaces are
Nova Scotia (per the 1920 census A McClellan was born in Canada - so Nova Scotia makes sense.)
Iowa (per the 1920 census Elva was born in Iowa)
British Columbia (and their son was born in Canada).
