I'm starting to research the 1870 census and the recounts that were done. NARA at: www.archives.gov/.../1870 indicates recounts were done for NYC (Manhattan), Philadelphia, and Indianapolis. I'm trying to get online references to these 3, and have access to the Historical New York Times (Proquest), and am Googling other information. The NARA site mentioned above states there is a 4th area that was recounted in 1870: "Geauga County, Ohio". There is an online site that also indicates that some counties of Oregon in 1870 were also recounted. I suspect these latter two online 'facts" are wrong. If one looks at the census rolls... for example the census rolls for Ohio 1870 at www.familysearch.org/.../698915 one finds Ohio had two filmings of the 1870 census sheets (not two recounts) and the two filmings on different rolls are available to the public, and the same two filmings situation I found for Oregon 1870. My question then, in addition to any Archives resources about 2nd enumerations in 1870 for the 3 cities, is: "Is the Geauga County, Ohio online statement by NARA for the 1870 census wrong? If it is correct, can you provide references to that county recount, where are the scans/films and why was the recount done? Thanks in advance.
