Genealogy census tip: Look carefully at other people with same surnames

people groupBy Barry J. Ewell
Look carefully at other people with same surnames. Look closely at persons with the same surname. Could they be a relative? Does the individual show up as a child in earlier census?  Search other records such as deeds, wills to see if the person shows up. Could individuals be in-laws? Check marriages of the county for husbands of sisters, aunts, mothers.
