Why This Record Was Created
The state census was taken in order to enumerate the population for representation purposes
Censuses are usually reliable, depending on the knowledge of the informant and the care of the census enumerator. Information may have been given to a census taker by any member of the family or by a neighbor. Some information may have been incorrect or deliberately falsified.
Population schedules were handwritten on printed forms by the enumerators. They are arranged by county and community.
Census records are the best source to quickly identify a family group and residence. Use the place of residence and the birthplace for each person along with his or her age to search for birth information. The census identifies other persons in the household. The census may identify persons for whom other records do not exist
