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''':

=== 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.
 
 
=== More about censuses  ===
 
 
[[United States Census|Click here]] for additional details about how to use censuses, such as:
 
 
:*index searching tips
 
:*analyzing and using what you find
 
:*census accuracy
 
:*historical background
 
:*contents of various&nbsp;census years and types
 
 
=== External sites  ===
 
 
Many censuses and indexes&nbsp;are on free sites, others are at paid sites.&nbsp;Some&nbsp;may have access through library membership, and other are personal paid sites. Some sites have partial censuses and others major fee sites have the whole series,&nbsp;with&nbsp;indexes and links to images. Online indexes are searchable in different ways, see tips if you are having difficulties locating your family.
