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 1900 or 1910 census

Use information you know to search for them at:

  • FamilySearch
  • Ancestry
  • Findmypast

Step 2. Read the row of information for the mother in the family

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

Step 3. Find missing children in another record

  • other census years
  • church records
  • cemetery records
  • vital records
