The way FS is set up now it's a pain to use. Select 1861 census, enter a name and a county for residence and you get baptisms, marriages and census for every year. FS completely ignores the filter.

Not only does it have Sabina's name wrong but the birth places of Edwin and Sabina have been swopped as well.

Thanks Emeltee.

I'll have a look for the arrival of the Hall family. Can't find them Assisted to NSW or Qld.

Has to be 1861 - 1870.
