References and Abbreviations
As in previous transcriptions, we have also added a first column reference number. This is our indexing, not part of the official census. However, by using it for the demarcation of each house or household, it allows the names to be re-sorted into alphabetical order for easy location and to remain cross-referenced to the household in the original census list.
