1870 Census

Dates: 1 June (5 months)

Uniqueness:
-Asked if the father or mother of the individual were foreign born
-Asked if born within the year and to give month.
-Asked if a male citizen over 21 years of age
-Asked if a male citizen over 21 years of age, who has had their rights to vote denied other than because of the grounds of rebellion or crime.
-If a male individual is missing in this Census, it may serve as a clue that he may have been a casualty of the Civil War.

Problems:
-The census was to list only those abiding in the house as of June 1 (those who may have died since may be missed or children born after that date but by the time the enumerator came would not have been accounted for but again they may have.
-It has been said that many people were missed in the South.
