Thanks for all this great info Nicolás!!

You're welcome!

I’ve had a lot of fun collecting my ancestor’s census pages.
It’s been interesting to look at a map & see the route the census taker took. Humor at misspellings of how names were heard & then written down. And marvel at some of that elegant penmanship.
For me, the census generations are getting closer. In 1950, my father was 11, which means I might get to see myself on the next release.
This set was a little sad for me. I’ve known some of those then pre-teens & the end of their story - that they did not survive Covid.
Genealogy is bittersweet that way.
