Re: McNevin-Two possible 1870 census

In Reply to: McNevin-Two possible 1870 census by Kristen G of 61925

I’m not related to any member of this family.

Note -
1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++

Is there a "H" or "h" next to his address in the city directorry? These letters indicate "home address".
