Stub House Number

**'''[[(FamiliesWiki/Stub)House Number]]''':

This is a stub for a census event in an individual's record.

This is the street number of the building that is being enumerated is located. This would be part of a mailing address. The column for this information may be headed HS# (1900).

For rural places this number is often blank. In that case the stub may be omitted. However, enumerators sometimes enter the number only once per page and seldom enter it more than once per household. Where the value should be carried down with ditto marks, sometimes the marks were never entered or have not shown up well in copies and transcriptions. Be sure to check when there is any doubt.
