1911 census wrongly transcribed

Hi. Ive been searching for my GG grandmother for a few years, and found her living with one of her daughters and son in law.
I was amazed that when reading the transcription, that her name was written as her son in laws name and not her own married name.
Her married name is on the census but there has been no way that Genes could find her.
Can the transcription be changed?

hello Jane - this would be better posted on Genealogy Chat rather than the Chat Board

You can email Genes they may then change it...otherwise get someone to report it on Find my past as it is probably the same, then it will get changed on here
