I use the census forms for ALL of my census work. The other forms are useful but the census forms get the most workout. I have recommended these forms for several years and know several people who have gone back and reworked much of their documentation using these forms. I split the screen between the Excel form and census image from Ancestry, FamilySearch or Heritage Quest so that I can transcribe the data in just one step. I appreciate the simplicity of the forms.

Biggest Pro: Ability to transcribe data exactly as I see it, column by column.
Biggest Con: I have had to add my own column to census forms for estimated birth year.
