I’m not related to any member of this family.
1930 is the last available searchable census at this time.
1940 census has been released but it will take several months before the transcription is completed.
Facts you should know about the early census records -
All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.
NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”

TX Vital Records -
The Texas Vital Statistics law to register births and deaths was not passed until 1903.Texas was then and is now a dual registration state which means the local registrars retain a copy of all birth and death records for the events that take place within their jurisdiction and the state retains the original of all birth and death records for the entire State of Texas.However, the statutes for registering these events were not made mandatory until 1926.However, many local registrars did not adhere to the statutes until the late 1930’s or early 1940’s.This means some records reside only in the local registrars’ files and not with the State.

General Information – 1870 census
Four new states were added to the Union between 1860 and 1870 for a total of 37 states: Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada and Nebraska. In addition, six new territories were created: Dakota Territory, Colorado Territory, Arizona Territory, Idaho Territory, Montana Territory and Wyoming Territory. The Unorganized Territory, unofficially called the "Indian Territory" was not enumerated for non-Indians in 1870.
General Information – 1880 census
Colorado was the only state admitted to the Union between 1870 and 1880, bringing the total to 38 states. Eight territories were enumerated: Arizona, Dakota, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Wyoming territories. Unorganized Alaska was enumerated, but the "Indian Territory" was not enumerated for non-Indians. Unlike any previous censuses, after microfilming, the original 1880 census schedules for several states were transferred from the National Archives to various state archives, state libraries, or universities libraries. Only the original 1880 schedules for Pennsylvania remain at the National Archives. Several originals were later transferred to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in Washington, D.C.
