Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question #1: Some records are missing. Where can the records be viewed? Answer 1: Some census pages have no corresponding index records, and some record detail pages are missing Digital Folder Numbers and Image Numbers. See answers below for information about known missing records and respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location:

  • Census records for Pymosa, Cass County, Iowa are not indexed and can be found in the browse path Iowa, Non-Population Census Schedules, 1850–1880 > 1880 Agriculture Schedule > Cass > Image 31–48 of 130.

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question #2: Only some of the family members are listed in the record detail pages. How can I locate the entire family?
Answer 2: If a family group begins on the bottom of a census page, and continues at the top of the next census page, the family members are generally not grouped together. Search for the head of the household as a spouse or parent to yield search results for the remaining family group. In other cases, family members were just not indexed as a family group. Assemble family groups by viewing the images online or ordering the microfilm.

Question 3[edit | edit source]

Question #3: The record detail page is linked to the wrong image. How can I find the correct image?
Answer 3: From the record detail page, use the Event Place, District, Sheet Number and Letter, Film Number, Digital Folder Number, and Image Number to find the correct image by using the right or left scroll arrow. In most instances, the correct image is adjacent to the incorrect image.
