What does it mean when a census lists a person's place of birth as unknown? Were they just not home that day? I've ran into this problem several times, but I realized I actually have no idea what the protocol was for census taking in the mid nineteenth century. Was there just a man with a tablet that went from farm to farm interviewing people? What are the reasons why a person's place of birth would be listed as unknown? I'm open to any new ideas! And what are some logical explanations why a person disappears from all census records for 10 years?
