The 10 image set of the 1920 census of New Fairfield, Fairfield County Connecticut is reversed, Image 1 is the last page/sheet of the census, Image 10 is the first page/sheet 1A of the census.
Not only is the sheets shown in reverse, it is also indexed backwards!
My grand aunt Alma J. Anderson is shown on image 2, line 2
and Alma B. Anderson on line 1. they are indexed as being in the family of John Treadwell shown in image 1, this is wrong. Image 2 is sheet 5A, i have to forward to image 3 which is sheet 4B to get the previous sheet of the census. At the bottom of image 3/sheet4B, lines 98, 99 & 100 is Fred R Anderson, wife Lina V & son Theodore R. The Alma B Anderson shown on image 2 is Fred`s daughter and Alma J is Fred`s mother.

The Sanford & Wildman families on images 4, 5, 6 & 7 are also indexed wrong.
