Enumerated Twice in the Census

There is always the chance that the census taker listed your ancestor not once, but twice in the census. My maternal grandmother is listed two times in 1930: once with her parents and once in the household where she was "working out."

Several well-known individuals are listed more than once occasionally too, including
  • Mark Twain
  • Robert E. Lee
  • Humphrey Bogart
  • Katherine Anne Porter
  • Frank Lloyd Wright
  • Thomas Edison
  • Jack London
  • Charles Lindbergh

and a few more.
