PROBLEMS WHEN SAVING CENSUS DOCS:
double-check your Census docs after downloading as I have found that some were incomplete copies even though it said it was completed. I went back on a number of saved records to find it was only 1/3 of the page....You need to delete the 1st copy before downloading again....not sure what causes this error, but it happened multiple times on ancestry.com
