And More Census Information

Looking closely at the census, you have to analyze everything you see. For example. in the 1930 U.S. Census, the census taker asked how old the person was at his first marriage. The wife was also asked the same question. First, you can estimate the year when they were born. Based on the answers of both the husband and wife, you can compare them to see if this is his first or second wife. You can also look at the children to see if they are children of the first wife or the second.
