Variations on the Heenan surname — 4 Comments

  1. As a long-time genealogist I have come across many examples of the kind of problem you described in this blog. It’s important to know why and how enumerators and the like made these kinds of mistakes.

    It’s difficult to explain it to novice researchers who insist on only searching for their ancestors with the surnames spelt the way they do and not being open to variations thereof. Your blog post would be a really great link to share with them to clarify this phenomenon to them. So thank you very much for posting it. I look forward to your further blog posts.
