Those Ages Could Be Correct

Don't always assume that census ages are incorrect. I found the entry for my children's grandmother in 1940 and I thought there had to be a mistake--as I knew there were no twins in the family and their children were listed with ages:

  • Two 7 year olds
  • One 5 year old
  • One 4 year old
  • One 2 year old
  • One 1 year old
  • One under a year--7/12
The ages were correct--just a lot of children close together and the census date combined with the birthdates didn't help either.You can see the image here
