The Various Census Soundexes
Hi, noticed the various replys that had been posted concerning you posting.Most of the information is correct but.
The 1900 & 1920 Feredal Census was Soundex for all States. The 1910 was only Soundexed for 25 States (and New York was not done). The 1880 was Soundexed for all Staes but it anunusaul manner. The 1880 Soundex only lists those families that had a child age 10 or younger living in the household (all families were listed on the actual Census pages).
The various Soundex microfilms can be gotten at FHC's but the smaller FHC's will most likely have to order the microfilm in.The larger FHC's (like the Mesa, AZ one) do have all the Soundex microfilms.
