I might have just created a HUGE mess to clean up! I will stop now and seek help before proceeding any further.
The 1930 Mexico census appears to be listing the mother's last name for the children in a family. I am not sure. Here is an example:
Name: Angela Chaves
Estimated birth year: abt 1926
Home in 1930: Coyunquial, Arcelia, Guerrero
Gender: Mujer (Female)
Luis Martines 29
Juana Chaves 38
Ignacio Chaves 10
Estevan Chaves 7
Enziacia Chaves 5
Angela Chaves 4
Maria Victoria 43
I suspect the children are Martines Chaves (or, more likely Martinez Chavez--I'm not talking about the spelling at this moment) but the census only lists Chaves for the children and Chaves for the mother.
There are 110 people listed in Coyunquial, Arcelia, Guerrero in the 1930 census and I am over halfway done with the data-entry. Now I'm wondering if I got it ALL WRONG!!!
Oh what a hassle this will be if I have to go back and correct all these names!
Just to be sure, what is the naming convention in the 1930 census?
I am afraid I will need to go back and correct many of the last 50 or more records :-(
