« on: Saturday 26 January 08 01:10 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I have William Ashworth born 1875/6 in Manchester England..

I have had a look on the Ancestry site and found him in Altoona Pennsylvania on both census's...

He's also on the 1910 Miracode Index....what is this?

I was hoping someone could get me the  info that is on the census pages as I'm unable to access them ....as my subscription is only for the UK records...I'm curious as to see who he was with and if he was married...with children

Any help much appeciated

There is a passport application from 1920 for a William Ashworth who lived in Altoona, PA since 1905.  He was born in Manchester, England on 15 Dec 1874.  His father, then deceased, was Jacob Ashworth born Manchester.  If that sounds like your guy, then the census records are probably for him too.

The Miracode Index was an index to the census.  The actual census record has more information than the index.

1910 Census
William and Ethel Ashworth are boarders with a family headed by George Hargraves.

Ashworth, William, age 35, marital status is hard to read but looks like widower, born England, parents born England, looks like 5 under year of immigration (I guess that means he was there for 5 years), papers filed for naturalization, occupation - machinist, machine shop P.R.R. (Pennsylvania Railroad, maybe?)
Ashworth, Ethel, age 21, single, born England, parents born England, no occupation

1920 Census  900 Twentieth Avenue
They are lodgers with a family headed by John B. Wilson
Ashworth, William, age 44, widower, immigrated 1904, naturalized 1911, born England, parents born England, occupation - machinist, steam railroad
Ashworth, Ethel, age 31, single, immigrated 1909, alien, born England, parents born England, no occupation

The passport application has a picture of him on it.  If you'd like to see it, send me a private message with your e-mail and I'll forward it to you.

I think I might have found something else that applies to your William.  There is a border crossing from Canada to Malone, NY dated 5 Sep 1930.  William Ashworth was 55 years old.  Under place of birth, it says (Nat. Blair Co. PA, 3rd Aug 1911).  His home address was 2 Merrill Place, Geneva, NY.  Also crossing with him were Edna Ashworth, 39 years old, born Birmingham, Pa. 23 Jun 1891 and living at the same address.  Traveling with Edna was Ethel age 2 years 11 months.

William, Edna, and Ethel also traveled from Liverpool to Quebec, arriving 4 Sep 1930.  Their passport number was 208986 issued 24/4/1920 in Washington.  Same Geneva address.  Ethel was born 31 May 1927 in Geneva, NY.

I found the family in Geneva, Ontario Co., NY in the 1930 Census at 2 Merril Place. 
Ashworth, William, owned home worth $6K, 55 years old, age at first marriage 47, born England, parents born England, immigrated 1905, naturalized, occupation is hard to read - something like Dental Tection?, under industry it says Independent, not a veteran
Ashworth, Edna Z., wife, age 39, age at first marriage 31, born Pennsylvania, parents born Pennsylvania, no occupation
Ashworth, Ethel, daughter, age 2 years 10? months, born New York, (occupation listed as machinist, but I think that was meant for the person below)
Zeek, Charlie, brother-in-law, age 21, born Pennsylvania, parents born Pennsylvania, no occupation
