In Ireland, but born Bucks.
I have just come across a transcription of my home town, whilst searching the 1851 census.
I was looking for Risborough and I saw an entry spelt, Ruisbeoory.

I looked for myself and I could not believe that such a mistake could have been made. Even with my dodgy eyesight, I could see the original entry was nothing like what was transcribed. I took my glasses off, and I still could read it correctly.
Were these people on drugs or something.:D :eek: :(
I hope I don't come across anything worse, or I will have no chance.

Now I know why it can take 20yrs to knock down a brickwall.:'(

Julie found a weird one for me the other week, must be the same transcriber.:D

Again, another lesson I have learnt.

Whats your worst. ?
