    This really isn’t as wonderful as I expected. The link takes me to the correct search heading but when I put in my information it tales me to Deceased Ancestor’s Name and I have no way to narrow the search. 90% is the wrong decade. I did find one page with the name I’m looking for but it was transcribed really, really wrong. The columns of transcription were not in the right place so destination was transcribed as place of birth, age was under occupation, there were no actual places of birth. The whole thing was not worth the time I spent looking for my ancestor.

    Thanks for this tip. I just possibly found the record for my great-great grandfather. I can’t be positive about it, but there is nothing in the record which is inconsistent with what I know!
