What the Numbers in the Census Mean:  U.S. Federal and State Censuses 1790-1940

What the Numbers in the Census Mean:  British Censuses 1841-1911

What the Numbers in the Census Mean:  Canadian Censuses 1851-1911

Age Ranges from Census Age Classes: 1790 to 1840

Why do I show birth years from census data as two numbers, instead of one?

Calculating Birth Year / Birth Date from Age

Problems Caused by the Rebinding of Some 1790-1820 Censuses

The entire 1890 census was destroyed, except for fragments of AL, DC, IL, GA, and the Veterans Schedules.

The extractions below were nearly all started before the Federal census became available online (i.e., working from photocopies, microfilms, and CDs).  Now that the entire U.S., U.K., and Canadian censuses, complete with every-name indices and page images, is easily available online, the usefulness of my extractions is greatly dimished, so I leave them online primarily for convenience.  Except for the "major" extractions in support of my DNA projects, I probably won't finish any of the "minor" extractions that are incomplete, at least not just for the sake of completing them.
Viewing Tip:  temporarily reduce the text size in your browser to see more of a table without scrolling.

Please Note:  Ancestry.com seems to be continually refining the grouping of census page images, which is no doubt an improvement in accuracy, but it does have the effect of changing the Image numbers.  So, you may find the Image #'s I give no longer correspond to the ones at Ancestry.  I update them when I spot a change, but some Image #'s remain out-of-date.  I apologize for the inconvenience, but I've no doubt you'd rather I added more new records than waste time trying to keep the Image #'s up-to-date.

Miscellaneous — Table Descriptons, Sources, Etc.
The Census Timeline Tables are intended to identify all households of the particular surname and arrange them in tables as "timelines."  As best I can, I've tried to follow individual families from year to year and to indicate parentage, where known.  I've also tried to keep children in rows immediately below their parents, geography permitting.
The Census Record Tables are my attempt at extracting all households of the particular surname (or birthplace) from the censuses using available indices.  For an explanation of what the column numbers represent, please see this page.  Image numbers refer to images online at Genealogy.com or Ancestry.com, usually the latter.  Several times during the years Ancestry was placing the census online, they re-grouped the images, which means some of the images numbers have changed since I did my extraction of them.  If I stumble across one of these discrepances, I fix it, but I'm not making any effort whatsoever to redo these and bring the image numbers up to date.  Where a record spans two pages, only one image number and one page number are given.  Birthplace is given only when it is not the census state. 

The primary purpose of the Census Record Tables is for them to function as an every-name index to the census.  The extractions given in the Census Record Tables are not intended as a substitute for seeking out the original record because 1) these extractions do not necessarily include all non-family members living in the household, and 2) these extractions are not entirely verbatim.  To facilitate computerized searching, the spelling of names and places has been standardized, regardless of how the names were spelled in the original record (e.g., Phebe is Phoebe, Sally is Sarah, Michel is Michael, Wurtemburg is Wuerttemberg, etc.).  Where there is a link to the householder, this link will lead to a family group sheet that will contain a complete, verbatim extraction of the census record, plus whatever additional information I have on the family.  The only instance when the extractions on the family group sheets may not be verbatim is for the birth location, where I will usually use an abbreviation to save space (e.g., PA for Pennsylvania, Ger for Germany, etc.).  I use three letters to abbreviate the month, and I always abbreviate "Daughter" as "Dau," "Grandson" as "GSon," etc.  In other words, while I try very hard to extract the names absolutely verbatim, I may abbreviate or edit other information.

If you have found a record I have missed or feel I have made an error in extraction, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Sources for these extractions include the online indices and images at Ancestry.com and (formerly) Genealogy.com, the 1880 census index and extraction at the LDS web site, a collection of Heritage Quest census CDs, the Broderbund Census Index CD series, photocopies from NARA, etc.  The census is the census, so where you actually get the page is academicallyand totally irrelevant.  Consider that, when you cite a book, you don't include the name of the bookstore where you bought it in the citation.  When extracting census records, what you need to supply in the citation — in addition to the year, state, county, and township or municipality — is the roll and book numbers and page number(s), as the precise identifier of the record.  If you are copying someone else's transcription or extraction of the the census, then you do need to cite its source.
Like all unclassified government data, census data are in the public domain and therefore cannot be copyrighted (please see my Word on Copyright).  However, I do hold a compilation copyright to the timeline tables and record tables as "value-added" extractions.  I encourage you to use these tables as a finding aid in your research, but I will be "on your case" if you try to republish them.  You are invited to link to my pages from your web site, but not to copy them on your web site.
