Subject: Re: [TGF] census citation help

I am the one who is confused. I am attempting to cite pages 9-12. However, for the purpose of the assignment, I am using 150 individuals, which means I am citing up to and including line 34 on page 12. Apparently I have the numbers wrong for the families, as well. Normally, my citations are fine. I don't know why this one has me baffled. I will rework and resend the citation. Thank-you! Elizabeth Banas
