The 1843 Luxembourg census lists each house on a separate sheet, but not each household. The enumeration for the home of Jean Reuter actually lists two families. One is headed by Jean; the other is headed by a man named Mathias Danckoff.
How are the two families related?
There are a few ways to find an answer:
- Check the names in local civil registration entries. You might find the second name listed on a birth, death, or marriage record of a member of the first family.
- Follow the family in the census. In the 1846 census, Mathias Danckoff is no longer living with the family – and someone who was has taken his place.
Both of these methods lead to answer- the family was using the second part of their home for relatives!
