Census Guide Book Cover

Do you realize that census records are the most readily available genealogical source document? They are one of the most useful genealogy tools yet they are often the most misunderstood. Census records are actually a goldmine of data. This book will explain how to make the most of these records. 

In this work I explain what the census records are, what information they contain, and how to use them. I outline each year of the Federal Census (1790-1930) and explain them in detail. This book is designed to help the census novices and intermediate researchers come to grips with this valuable genealogical tool. Experts may also find this book useful.
