*Census Records

All of your contributions are welcome....and may help us to track dwon some of those elusive relatives.  Remember that these records are only as reliable as the census taker and the person giving information, who may even have been a neighbor or child.  Bad handwriting, bad memories and deliberate attempts to misrepresent facts are all common problems with this sort of record.
