It pays to look at the original document. I have had two instances now where a transcribed record was a very close match, but one essential "fact" didn't match. The first was a marriage register in Bristol County, Massachusetts. The couple, my gr-gr-grandparents were married in Taunton, MA, but the register column showed a ditto (") mark. At the top of the page does say Taunton. A few rows down another couple was corrected to read Providence, Rhode Island, thus changing the location for those below as well. Recently, researching for a friend, the 1880 census for Kemper County, Mississippi, the lazy enumerator used dittos extensively, or just left lots of blanks! In this case, the family matched exactly except for the "Race" column. Suddenly my friends grandfather and his parents and grandparents are 'B' for Black! Fortunately, the youngest sibling is at the top of the next page and is correctly listed 'w' for white. For days I did not consider this family unit in the search results because of this problem, until I looked at the images for the original. Darn dittos!
