Tips
  • If at first you don't find a name, try again under another spelling.
  • Download a digital image of the page where each ancestor's name appears. Identify where you found it.
  • Transcribe the entire household onto the appropriate year's census worksheet, making note of important information like number of years married, age at first marriage, number of children born to this mother, year of immigration, etc. Information gathered differs for each census.
  • Look for an ancestor in every census during her or his lifetime.
  • On the family group record show each person's census listings.
  • Study others in the same household, neighbors, and anyone with the similar names nearby on the census in community context.
  • For a list of the exact date of each federal census, see Actual Census Dates.

Why use a census?[edit | edit source]

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.
