Census Records

A census is the enumeration or counting of the number of people who live in a country that allow the government to assess the needs of the people. They are taken every ten years in the United States. In the United States, beginning in 1790, they took the names of the head of household, and all information about that family unit. All names were not listed until 1850, including the free population schedules. The information contained the head of household, and all other members of the family, the number of the order of the visit, the gender, race, age, years of marriage, name of children, relationship to the head of household, and whether the head of household, owned, sharecropped, or rented the place of expedients.
There are three types of census records. Federal Population Schedules (1790-1920), Census Indexes (1790-1870), and Census Images available on the Internet. These sources were a valuable asset to the finding of the records found on all the ancestors. The Counties of Northampton, Halifax, Bertie, Mecklenburg, and Union County, North Carolina were read the find information. The counties of Lancaster and Kershaw were used for South Carolina. The census record for Portsmouth, Virginia were also used in this compilation. "The Census Images of North Carolina, 1850, Banner Blue Division, 1999" were used at the Portsmouth Public Library. The Sargeant Memorial Room at the Norfolk Public Library possess the Federal Census of the United States (1790-1920). They all have the Census Indexes for the Federal Census.
