Lining up polygon layer from one projection with a polygon layer in another projection

Good morning,

 

I am trying to line up one of my polygon layers, which consists of our county layer that is divided into different zones, with the surrounding counties tiger file layer.

 

My polygon layer is in NAD_1983_HARN_StatePlane_Florida_East_FIPS_0901_Feet and the census tiger files are in GCS_North_American_1983.

 

My approach was to project the census polygon layer into our coordinate system and the align my polygon layer with the census layer. I thought with this approach, when I project our polygon layer to GCS_North_American_1983 it should align with the original census layer. Needles to say it didn't.

 

What is the best practice to align two polygon layers with a different coordinate system? 

 

Thanks,

 

Tim
