ABOUT the 1900 FERRY COUNTY CENSUS INDEX PROJECT
This surname index includes every surname which appears more than once in a given "household". The information for each included surname is as follows -
PRECINCT ENUMERATION DISTRICT CENSUS SHEET HOUSEHOLD NUMBER SURNAME GIVEN NAME STATUS RACE SEX YEAR of BIRTH AGE MARITAL STATUS YEARS MARRIED CHILDREN BORN/STILL LIVING*** PLACE OF BIRTH
*** The number of children in almost all cases was taken from the WIFE'S census entry - it does NOT mean that these were (necessarily) the HUSBAND'S children.
The "YGI" page contains those entries where I couldn't make even a GUESS as to the surname (thus the name of the page - "Your Guess Is As Good As Mine"). Perhaps the other information in the YGI entries will provide some clue as to the identities of the individuals - if you can pick out one of YOUR folks on the YGI list, DO email me and let me know the name, and I'll remove the individual from the YGI and add the surname to the correct alpha page.
The "STRAYS INDEX" was derived from the Surname Index, and includes information for individuals who were born outside of the United States. It is NOT a list of every person "from Away" who resided in Ferry County in 1900.
