When the census taker came to the door

Have you ever thought about what really happened when the census taker knocked on your ancestor's door? The census itself really doesn't tell us and there are many ways your ancestor adn the census taker could have interacted.

We posted a fictional article on our site about what might have happened over several census enumerations.

Just something to think about when the enumerations are not consistent.
