Find children missing from a family by using the 1900 & 1910 Census

Certain census records identified the number of children born and how many were still living. This information may help you verify that all children in a family are accounted for.

Step 1. Find the family in the first census after their marriage

Use information you know to search for them at:

  • FamilySearch
  • Ancestry
  • Findmypast

Step 2. Find the family in each following census (every ten years)

This will help you learn more about the family. Some children only appear in one census year.

Step 3. Verify all census information with another record

  • church records
  • cemetery records
  • vital records
