1840 Census
« on: Sunday 05 August 12 07:13 BST (UK) »
Help Needed

I'm trying to find Charles Andrew Murray ( b.1911 Springfield,Indiana ) & Family in the 1940 census but have come to a dead end.


On Ancestry.com Charles & his wife Margarete are listed at 939 Walnut Street,Decatur,Adams,Indiana.
But the image shows them on lines 24 & 25 crossed out with the words EXTRA LINE & no other details.

What does this mean??

Image Address

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1961-27855-3950-2?cc=2000219

Link changed to free image ~moderator


I can't find them anywhere else in the 1940 Census.

Anybody got any suggestions.

Thanks Snook

I don't know about ancestry, but the familysearch site doesn't have all states yet in their database.  Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, to name a few have yet to be entered and are marked with asterics.  Maybe your people have moved to another state.
