How To find a missing person on census records

Genealogical Collection

Where is Percy Green in 1940?

Don’t you just hate it when you can’t find a family member on some census record when you “KNOW” the person has to be there?

In my last blog posting I talked about find the obituary for Irene V. Greene , creating a family tree to find a real Family Tree for her and how I could not find her or her husband Percy on the 1940 census.

In this blog posting I will give you step by step instructions on how to find Percy.
As you know from the previous posting he is on the 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930 census.
