One last thought.

I have found that not all census indexes include everyone. I found one of my surnames in a census through another researcher that happen to come across it when he researched the daughter of the missing family. By chance her parents lived next store and thats how he found them. After knowing the page number I searched the index using that and the daughter appears(or rather her husband) but her parents were still omitted. If you work backwards from the most recent census you can prove (if it's after 1850) you may have to do the old fashion way of looking page by page. That's how I did it before the indexes and you actually find alot more, since you don't have to try and find them with the soundex...

Good Luck

Yvonne
