“Yes, precious, we hates little hobbitses.”
That's the one.
This is what happens when you let Gollum index:
Source: “United States Census, 1880,” index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MCVH-35X : accessed 1 January 2015), William L We-Hates, Virginia, Union, Dakota Territory; from p. 8 (handwritten), lines 26-32, NARA microfilm publication T9 (National Archives and Records Administration, Washington D.C.: n.d.), roll 115; FHL microfilm 1,254,115.
While this is an obvious indexing error, most are not so easily discernable. You’ve heard me say it before. Always check the image!
Thank you, Larry Webster Turner, for sharing this example.
