When looking for your ancestors in old census records aren’t you sometimes frustrated because nothing comes up when you do a search?
Why can’t I find ”old Uncle Harry” in the 1900 census, he was born in 1895 so he should be there?
Well, maybe this is one of the reasons; “Small Pox Quarantine”.
Jackson, Michigan June 1900.
14 living Persons in this house
ordered by Board of health not
to visit this House.
Aren’t we lucky to be living in the year 2013 and not in the year 1900?
