Lessons by Charles
It is very important to be sure that you are looking in the right place before attempting to locate a state or territorial census. It would be a complete waste of time to finally gain access to a census and not find your ancestor because of boundary changes that you were not aware of. Study the map of an area during the time period your ancestor lived there.
- father's name
- mother's name
- 1870 Agricultural Census
- Ancestors who had a large enough farm may be listed.
- 1870 US Mortality Schedule
- If your ancestor died within 12 months prior to when the 1870 US Census was taken, he or she may be listed on the 1870 Mortality Schedule.
- 1868 Voter's Registration
- Males over 18 who voted may be listed in this SC resource.
|1850 Census||Head of household|
|1860 Census||Names each member in household|
