      Thomas T Moore on 1870 census with known parents/siblings b 1859 in GA, USA -- nothing more anyplace till I find him connected to some of the proven family members as Thomas B Moore b GA 1859 Oct  he has a wife and family and no history. How do I know he's Thomas T?

            Unfortunately you need more information such as children or spouse. I usually do a search one year to either side of the known birth year because census takers take the person's age not birthdate. So, sometimes a child is say 8 in 1930 census but the birthdate was later in the year so instead of listing 1921 as the birth year they list 1922 as the birth year. Also, he may not be listed as Thomas T on all records but simply Thomas. If you have more information, it will help you. Finally, I sometimes have luck searching for the other family members that links to the person I am looking for. I hope this isn't too complicated. I'm not a moderator.
