    How can incorrect information be corrected on a transcribed census?

      I have discovered that some transcribing in the 1860 census is very likely incorrect. The transcriber did not translate the last name correctly. How can this be fixed? Because of this fact a particular family line is excluded from the 1860 census. My reason is as follows.

       

      Researching a 3rd great-grandfather I discovered that some other relatives were listed as living at the same location, but the last name was wrong. I further found a 2nd great-grandfather who married the daughter of my 3rd great-grandfather listed in the same census, but again the last name is wrong. The transcriber completely screwed up the name.

       

      How can this be fixed?
