Entry: decade errors
Description: A family historian's careless transposing of digits can have devastating consequences for an individual - they are wrenched from their era to another time, perhaps several hundred years after their own children lived. Picking the wrong decade can have equally ruinous effects on trying to trace an indivudal. Unless a kindly search engine widens its scope, you will lose the trail. So remember those number bonds and count backwards with care from a census year.
