Known Issues[edit | edit source]
Question #1: Can you please clarify the strange indexing done in the Dane > Dane county browse point 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: 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 browse point as Garmington. It should be Farmington.
