=== State and colonial censuses  ===
 
 
 
Maryland made in '''1778''' a list of citizens who had taken an oath of fidelity which list is sometimes called a census.
 
 
 
Maryland took a census in '''1776''':
 
 
 
*Gaius Marcus Brumbaugh, ''[http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/11019085&referer=brief_results Maryland Records, Colonial, Revolutionary, County and Church from Original Sources]'', 2 vols. (1915-1928; reprint, Baltimore:Genealogical Publ.,&nbsp;1975) [[http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=titledetails&columns=*%2C0%2C0&titleno=444406&disp=Maryland+records++ FHL book&nbsp;975.2 D29b; fiche&nbsp;6046943]]
 
*Bettie Stirling Carothers, [http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/13665718&referer=brief_results ''1776 Census of Maryland'' ](Lutherville, Md.: B.S. Carothers, 1972) [[http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=titledetails&titleno=253505&disp=1776+census+of+Maryland%20%20&columns=*,0,0 FHL book&nbsp;975.2 X2p 1776; film&nbsp;928227 Item 2]]
 
 
 
An '''online index to both '''is found in&nbsp; [http://guide.mdsa.net/series.cfm?action=viewSeries&ID=S1419 MARYLAND INDEXES (Census Index) 1776-1778 [MSA S1419]].
 
 
 
=== Existing and lost censuses  ===
 
 
 
For a list of available and missing Maryland censuses, [[Maryland Censuses Existing and Lost|click here]]. <br>  
 
 
 
=== 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.
