Another Census Tip

As I said before, making a census table on excel can assist you in making your research question so that you can perhaps break your brick wall. Comparing the census from one year to the next can bring up important clues and it helps to see it on paper (or computer screen). All of the Censuses from 1850 to 1940 indicate the person's state or country of birth, which helps to narrow down where you should search.
