Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Can you please clarify the strange indexing done in the Dane > Dane county waypoint for the Fitchburg area?
Answer 1: In Dane County (Fitchburg), images 63-67 seem to be entered incorrectly. In houses with married couples, the enumerator put two people on the same line as a married couple but the indexer read the script “+” sign as an “or” and made them one individual.

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: I am finding a locality of Garmington in Waupaca County. Is this an actual location?
Answer 2: No, the indexer has incorrectly indexed page 26 in the Waupaca > Waupaca waypoint as Garmington. It should be Farmington.
