Tips & Tricks
Probate records refer to wills, inventories, letters of administration and guardianship. They are usually held at the county courthouse unless archived and they are indexed by the name of the testator.
[Probate Records]
The U.S. census is taken every 10 years on a designated census day by an enumerator in a specific area called an enumeration district (E.D.). The first U.S. census was done in 1790; there are no U.S.censuses before 1790. The 1890 census was destroyed. Census information is kept confidential for 72 years after the census is taken.
Prepare a census timeline before you begin. Review what you will find in the census you are searching. Work backwards from the most recent census. Expect spelling and age variations.
