Transcription at from US Census of 1910.

Item ID: 4794

Welcome to Placerville, Idaho! It is 1910, and the Bard family is living in Boise County while their father, Daisy, is chipping rocks in the mountains.

Say what?!

"Daisy" is just the first in a series of typos and mistransciptions and name changes that follow the Bard family through the census.

Sorry, E&I fans, but only a bit of it overlaps your favorite book.

In this album, I'm collecting all the available census and public records. Check in from time to time to see what has shown up. (Contributions are welcome. Suggestions are welcome to, as long as they don't relate to my parentage or anatomy.)
