Surnames index updated
1st June 2006
The Index of Incorrect Surnames has been updated today, and now includes well over 6000 different incorrect surnames from the 1881 Census!
Not all of these are mis-spellings and mis-transcriptions; often members of a household were incorrectly ascribed the surname of the head of household by the census enumerator.
If you're having difficulty finding one of your relatives on the 1881 Census, the Index of Incorrect Surnames is a good place to start looking!
