Two manuscripts exist for the 1850, 1860, and 1870 censuses. One set of manuscripts exists at the National Archives and another at the Wisconsin Historical Society. The information on each set is supposed to be the same, but it can be beneficial to check both. Transcription errors might exist. The two might differ in the legibility of the handwriting, the condition of the manuscript, and the quality of the microfilm.<ref>"Local Genealogy," ''McMillan Memorial Library'' (http://www.scls.lib.wi.us/mcm/local/local_genealogy.html : accessed 2 October 2009).</ref> The Family History Library has microfilms of the set in the possession of the National Archives.

=== 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.
