vol 79 ed ? not sure
sheet 3 line 90
Volume number is not important, but edition number is very, very important.
That tells you exactly where to look on the census reel. Sheet is the page
number, but each edition will have pages beginning with 1 and continuing
thru, so that is why you must have the edition number. Line is simply the
line number on the census, with 90 on the second section of sheet 3.
You can go thru the entire census and check sheet 3 on every edition that you
find, but that will be time consuming.
Perhaps you can find someone who will be able to give you a better reading of
the soundex and get the edition number for you.
