=== 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.

:*analyzing and using what you find
 
:*census accuracy
 
:*historical background
 
:*contents of various&nbsp;census years and types
