Your Guide to the Federal Census Reviews
Well written book. Was required reading for a college course. This was my 6th semester-long family history course on the college level and I still learned things from this book. Highly recommended, thorough book on the US Federal census. I especially enjoyed reading the journal entries of a woman who was a census taker from over 100 years ago. I also enjoyed the chapters on the additional non-population schedules and what you can glean from them.
Although this book was published several years ago, the information in it is timeless. Ms. Hinckley has done a masterful job of identifying unique and little known ways to mine the census for valuable data. Her writing style is straightforward and easy to understand. Using the search strategies that she suggests has helped me find people that I had been looking for a long time; but could not find. Any serious family historian should have this book in his/her genealogy collection.
This is one of my favorite book I used for genology. Soooo much good information how the census has changed over the years. I must have for new genealogists.
This is a well written in depth book, every person should have this book on their shelves. One of my go to books.
Have not had time to use yet but it is one resource recommended as a priority in building a personal home genealogy research library. Even though it was listed as used, it is in mint condition. Will recommend in my Genealogy organization for others to consider using this source for purchase.
This book might be a turn off because of the fact that it only covers up to the 1930 census. However, I got it very inexpensive and the information is outstanding. It is worth the money spent.
I bought it for my genealogy research. I am keeping myself aware of how to read the census to better guide my research.
