  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Missing bits of censuses

  2. 1891 Census

    Hi: I hope this doesn't seem odd, but I'd like to enlist the assistance of researchers with more experience than me with a problem I have with the census return for Margaret Karney in 1891; she has three children, Mark, Andrew & Ellen, and is a widow who was born about 1833 in Ireland. The...

I can't seem to find him on the 1881 or the 1891 census. He married Elizabeth Evans in 1889. I did pick Walter up again on...
