The schedule also contains remarks necessary for a complete statement of his term of service. Many Confederate veterans were accidentally enumerated.

=== State, territorial, and colonial censuses ===
 
 
 
Many counties took school censuses at various times between 1888 and 1932 (mostly 1895 to 1910). These list every person in the household. As of June 1999 the Family History Library had copies of school censuses from 18 counties, such as:
 
 
 
*Monroe County Kentucky. Clerk of the County Court. ''School Census, 1893–1903''. Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1969. (Family History Library [http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=titledetails&titleno=117304&disp=School+census%2C+1893%2D1903%20%20&columns=*,0,0 film 589661].) This school census lists the children’s name, age, sex, and parents’ names.
 
 
 
'''1787--'''Kentucky was enumerated with parts of Virginia and West Virginia.
 
 
 
'''1795--'''Kentucky took a state census.
 
 
 
'''1819--'''Kentucky took a state census for '''Boone''', '''Campbell''', and '''Kenton''' Counties.

=== Why use a census?  ===
 
 
 
A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.
