Federal Census Indexing and Original Document Errors
I have found that some United States Federal Census documents contain errors. As a result, they may be indexed incorrectly. Some of the errors are incorrect names and incorrect family relationships. The errors could arise from a bad census taker, a language barrier, or the respondent gave incorrect information. If these documents are accepted as correct, they will corrupt any family tree they are attached to. I know this because it has happened to me. Is there a way to correct these documents and warn users of this in advance?
I sent this message in a private e-mail months ago to FamilySearch.Org , and they replied that they were too overwhelmed to consider this and told me it might be a year or more before they could address it, and immediately marked the request as closed.
