Hi, Dave--

You are so right about names being read incorrectly. I use Heritage Quest Online to search census listings, and for the 1900 census, they had your ancestor listed as Fred Paris. Once I clicked on the name and saw the names of his children, I knew it was the correct person. Sometimes, I will do a search using only first name, age, and place of birth. You have to be willing to get creative.

In case you aren't familiar with it, another good site is

All the best,
