Find children missing from a family by using the 1900 & 1910 United States 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:

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

  1. Read across until you find the number of children born and those now living.
  2. Compare the numbers with the children you know about

Step 3. Find any missing children in another record

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