Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Name variation searches
- I kept looking for my husband's family on the 1880 census. I knew they should have been in Alabama at this time. I couldn't fine them, with the correct spelling. One letter was wrong in the spelling. When I searched for the variation, I found them.

- Always look for varient spellings. Not all enumerators
were that literate. I have found my KRONK name listed
as KRUNK ,CRUNK, CRONK. My father in 1910 had an "E"
in place of an "A" in his name. If you are having
trouble finding a name if possible use soundex.
Also, take into account that names were changed to
assimilate into the country, ei. Mastrangelo became
Masters or Mechling became Macklin and in the case of
the above Kronk name is from Kranecht.
