Hi Sherry & listers,
I had the same sort of problem. What I ended up doing was looking up the
person's mother-in-law and then scrolling through the neighbours. I then
found my Buxey spelled Boxerxey.
The other thing you can try is to look in the area you found them in 1901
and just scroll through. Put in as much info as you have, place of birth,
ethnic origin, approx year of birth, etc. That will give you less results.

Subject: [Q-R] Any Suggestions?
Was hoping someone would have a suggestion as to what name to look for as
"Toal" in my 1881 Census CD. I've tried all veriations of Toal and have come
up empty. Even tried putting the man's first name as his last name and then
tried searching as his first name (Thomas) and using a wildcard with T for
his last name. Still come up empty. Any suggestions?
I should say first that he's in the 1901 census as coming to Canada in 1870
and his children are all born in Quebec from 1876 to 1887 and they're still
in same area in 1901.
