BOOK - Guide to the United States Census, 1790-1930.
By Shirley G. Hodges, Author's Biography
Published by Global Heritage Press

Guide to the United States Census, 1790-1930 begins by explaining what the United States census records are, what information they contain and how to use each census. Each individual year of the Federal Census between 1790 and 1930 (census were compiled every 10 years) is explained in detail. This guide is designed to help the census novice and intermediate researcher come to grips with this valuable genealogical tool. Experts may also find this guide useful.

The census is a great beginning place for further genealogical research insofar as census place specific individuals in specific places at specific times.

Census returns enable us to track ancestors we know about and discover ancestors we never knew existed. When we connect these "finds" to the birth, marriage and death records, we can discover more about these long lost relatives. Census can help us learn about the social and economic situation of our ancestors at various times in history. We are able to get a picture of our ancestor's lives from their occupations and the type and number of servants who might have been living in the household for example, maid, cook, driver, farm-hand etc.

Census research is big part of the fun of the family history research addiction that so many of us are afflicted with. Shirley Hodges' book, Guide to the United States Census, 1790-1930 will help you save time and effort while you get the most out of United States census records.
