Hi All, I've been searching for my family (Poynts) on 1871 census. I finally found them today by sidestepping and looking at a married daughters family. It seems the reason I couldn't find them was because the surname Poynts has been transcribed on Ancestry as Loynes. Now whilst I have tried some variations that wasn't one of them! I've printed off the census page and it clearly says Poynts. Does anyone know who I should contact regarding this? I looked on Ancestry contact us but there didn't seem to be anything relevant. Cheers Naomi
