Coordinate systems not lining up

Hi there,

I am trying to line up a US Census Block shapefile with another shapefile that has lat/long points, but the points are not lining up with the Census shapefile.


Here is some info that i can offer:

The census file is in WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere

The points shapefile is in an unprojected lat/long


I have projected the Points shapefile to GCS_WGS_1984

I have projected the Census shapefile to WGS 1984, WGS Web Mercator, NAD 1983, NAD 1983 Albers.


In most scenarios, the points shapefile is either really really small in the center of the map, or off to the side and kind of tilted.


Id be happy to offer anymore info if needed. Thanks so much!
