Extended Description:

INTRODUCTION
By constitutional requirement, the federal government of the United States
conducts an enumeration of the nation every ten years. Since the first
census in 1790, the returns from these censuses have become an invaluable
source of information for genealogists and others. This collection of census
records contains a vast amount of information on millions of Americans.
Although the questions asked and information provided has changed since that
first census, there is some basic information provided in all indexes. The
name of the head of the household is provided from the first census. In
1800, age categorization and residence was added to the other questions
regarding slaves, and number of males and females. In 1820, categorization
of occupation was added. In 1830, categorization of deaf, dumb, and blind
persons was added. In 1850, the name, age, sex, color, place of birth, and
literacy was added to the questionnaire. In 1860, the value of real estate
was an added feature of the enumeration. And in 1880 the census added
questions relative to marital status, and parents' place of birth.

VETERAN SCHEDULES (1840-1890)
In 1840 an enumeration of living Revolutionary War veterans was included in
the census. This was a list of names recorded on the back of the original
printed census forms. Beginning in 1870, the enumerators asked questions
regarding Civil War veterans and lists were compiled from these records. In
both cases, only the name of the veteran is available.

SLAVE SCHEDULES
At the 1850 and 1860 censuses, an enumeration of slaves was performed. Full
names were rarely recorded, yet each slave was numbered. Organized by owner,
each person was listed with age, sex and color. With these details, along
with other facts gathered outside the schedule, it is possible to locate a
specific person without actually finding their name.

LIMITATIONS
Despite the wealth of information available in census indexes, there are
limitations. These include incomplete information, mis-transcribed
information, mis-recorded information, and incorrect information. Reasons
for these problems include persons who refused to answer the enumerators
questions, persons who lied in answer to the enumerators questions, persons
missed by the enumerators, and human error in writing down the information
originally or transmitted incorrectly.
For further, more detailed, information refer to Chapter 5 (pg. 103-146) in
The Source, edited by Loretto Dennis Szucs and Sandra Hargreaves Luebking,
or Chapter 9 (pg. 301-352) in Printed Sources, edited by Kory L. Meyerink.
