The Name, age, RD and piece are correct, the image has a line pointing to born 'Scotland Rothsay', others b. Yorks Halifax.

The transcription has Piece = 25429 and ED = 27.

Geoff
 
Perhaps should have mentioned they are transcribed as Smith on Anc. As previous entry surname.

EDIT: In 1891

Re Elizabeth Duff,

I entered combinations of that piece no and Elizabeth Duff and her age and the RD the record was not returned.

The transcription has Piece = 25429 and ED = 27.

Geoff

The transcription has to be wrong ?? Or this is wrong.

Not sure what you mean, Dave..

Was the info correct for 1891 in post #3?

Re 1911, I just typed in Elizabeth's name, birth year [1849 or 1852] and lived n Lancashire and the 1911 appeared straight away with the info that I have already given.

This is the ref, [RG14PN25429 RG78PN1454 RD477 SD3 ED27 SN118] also same on FMP, I would suggest your ref is wrong.

Geoff
 
Thanks Geoff.

Don't know where that 1911 ref came from but I'll accept it as being wrong.

Re post #1 I could not find the image, so what input fields do work on A... to get the image?

You probably wouldn't get the correct transcription/image for 1891 [post #1] because they are not transcribed as Duff, they are transcribed as Smith [but says Duff on the image], see posts #3 & 5. Let me know if you want a copy of the family in the image for 1891.

Geoff
 
Ok, thanks Geoff.

That might explain why I could not find the image.

Smith ? How does that read Smith?

Ok, I should try combination of input fields without surname. I often waste too much of my two hours on one image.

Dave
 
When I search censuses I remove the names when I get some info re the ref, invariably the problem lies with the transcription, usually a surname.

I'l send details of the image.
