Source: Derived It is known that in some instances a 1971 or 1981 Census LS number was traced for an LS member who appeared to be an 'Immigrant', and the file was updated with the earlier LS number. These were described as 'Late Trace' cases. For records that fell outside the allocated range of 'immigrant' numbers, regardless of whether a core record 11 existed or not, the 'Late Trace' indicator was set
