A easy way to analyse and make sense of head-of-household only U.S. census from 1790-1840
Biggest Pro: Examples provided gets you on the right trackBiggest Con: None found yet.
A sensible way to make sense out of head-of-household only censuses. It helps to narrow down birth dates and construct the contemporary make-up of the family.
Biggest Pro: logical arrangement of dataBiggest Con: none
Brilliant method and forms to wring family data from the pre-1850 census, where only the head of household is named. Uses data from multiple census years to tease out names of the children.
Biggest Pro: Organizes census data in an out-of-the box way to show relationshipsBiggest Con: Not always able to give definitive results
One of the best free items to evaluate or analysis of ages and family members with pre 1850 census records. I have added it to Gary Minders worksheets, per family, as a file inside the file, so they are all together. I like the way John Haynes changed the male and female data entry so they are in the same vertical column. Have switched Gary Minders male and female data from horizontal to vertical so that I am reading the files the same way.
Biggest Pro: Helps to sort dates in pre 1850 census recordsBiggest Con: non that I know of
