because my grandmother is not listed with the rest of her family as she was born in 1921, the census on genes only goes up to 1911...I do not know how to go beyond this census wise

There are no other censuses open to the public until 2021, when the 1921 census is released. The next is 10 years later on so on............

Annette Report 4 Jan 2013 17:05

oh right sorry...thick me lol. Does the Linehan name change throughout the course of history or is it just a typing error lol??? :)

Gins

Gins Report 4 Jan 2013 17:16

Dont worry about spellings! Most people couldnt read or write and didnt know how to spell their own name!

Also, on census records, the transcriber may have read the name wrong and so, transcribed it incorrectly
