I am sure many Rootschat users will have heard of 'Googlewhacking', where the object is to put two words into the Google search engine and come up with only one result?Well, how about Census whacking using Ancestry or other programmes?
The rules are simple: see if you can find
- a surname that occurs in only ONE family in any census
- a first name that only one person in the country has
- an occupation that only one person in the country has
To start you off, in 1881 there was only ONE 'Witch Well Hole Maker' in the country - what would we have done without him?
