    Farm schedules are not available for 1900 and 1910–they were destroyed by Congressional order. I think they are only available for 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880.

      I mentioned the farm schedule numbers were provided on them. The presentation is on the population head count schedules only. Great job checking into census schedules! 🙂

    A good reminder to look carefully at each category listed on the census and also to check the ages of the children against the current wife to decide if a previous wife should be looked for.

    I have looked at each individual census in-depth, but never have really compared them. She gives a great presentation and food for thought making me go back to re-evaluate each for further information. Thank you.

    I learned so much about things I did not know to look for in the census.
