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
- Read across until you find the number of children born and those now living.
- 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
