Professional Genealogists Benefit From Double Census Enumerations
Professional genealogists benefit from discovering double census enumerations because it provides more incite into the family unit by way of others with whom they associated. Double census enumerations are where a single person is found twice in a given census year. We recently completed a genealogy research project where we found a double census enumeration and it provided us with key information about the other family members. In our case we found a family’s daughter living with her parents but then also found her living with what turned out to be extended family members. This opened up a new avenue that led to further genealogy discoveries!
