Please someone HELP - How accurate are the census'? The age at last birthday, is that very accurate? only i am trying and trying to expand my tree have been on both the 1881 site and 1901 site, i get names come up that i am looking for but there is usually a 2 - 5 yr age difference between the census' - so i need to know have i found the correct ancestor? or did most of them disappear between them? Also does anyone know of a good 1891 census site???? Thank you x
