A Census Search Tip

This comes from the Genealogy Tip of the Day website. If you are having trouble finding your ancestor in the census, consider searching using the person's middle name as the last name in your search. Sometimes people would give their names that way (for example Peter Paul Summers might state his name to the census taker as Peter Paul, or the census taker might, on his own, record it that way).
