Notations on Census

Are notations from the census department making if difficult for you to find you relative in the census? The entry here (1900 for baseball great Babe Ruth) contains notations over several names. Of course, this makes reading the names to make an index even more difficult than usual. For this reason more creative search techniques may be necessary. Or (heaven forbid!) one may have to search the census manually---which is what we used to do anyway ;-)
