Re: [FHCNET] AIS
- If they're not used in your FHC, it must be because no
staffer mentions them. They're heavily used in our FHC --
particularly since we lost the 1850 index at Ancestry.
After all, if a name was on page 15 of the 1850 for Podunk
County AL in 1850 and in 1972 and in 1990, chances are it's
still there, no matter how old the index you used to find it.

There should be no attachments on this message, unless I
specifically mentioned them above.
- I personally have solved a copy of difficult research problems by using
the index of early 1800 census' as found in the AIS. It is worth
using. Nancy Hugo
