A Transcript is not the original!
Some time ago I obtained an 1881 English Census household entry from the LDS transcripts on CD for Thomas and Ida Gorsuch. The other day, having access to ancestry.com at the GSV Library I obtained a scanned copy of the actual census book page. In the last column of the entry for Ida, recording whether the person was (1) Deaf-and-Dumb (2) Blind (3) Imbecile or Idiot (4) Lunatic, was an entry reading “Partially blind from accident”. This information was not on the census transcript, and sheds a little more light on her personal history.
Also a reminder that the transcript is not the original! A quick check of my sources list indicates that there are a couple more LDS 1881 transcripts that I need to obtain the original for.
