Hi Terence

It may not be down to anything you're doing..

Genealogy sites may differ because they use differently transcribed versions of the census.

Transcribers are only human, and two people may transcribe the same record differently, especially if the original is faint or the handwriting hard to read.

So the same record may be transcribed differently on different sites, and you may find it easier to find on one site than another.

I believe Genes use the same source as FMP for census records, and FMP mistranscribe her thus, which explains your difficulty.:

Address: 8, Court, Birmingham County: Warwickshire

MILLOR, Emma Head Widow F 37 1814 Shoe Binder Birmingham, Warwickshire
MILLOR, Frederick Son M 9 1842 Scholar Birmingham, Warwickshire

They have also not turned over the census page and added the rest of the household!

The rest of the family listed as a separate household thus:

Address: 8, Court, Milk Street, Birmingham County: Warwickshire

MILLOR, Herbert Son M 9 1842 Scholar Birmingham, Warwickshire
MILLOR, Ann Visitor Widow F 70 1781 Formerly Shoe Binder
Uttoxeter
