When the Founding Fathers of the United States convened the Constitutional Convention in 1787 they had no idea that they would, in the course of their deliberations, create the means to an end for generations of American family history researchers. While Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution does not directly mention preserving vital personal information for future generations, it does instruct the government to conduct a decennial census in an effort to fairly apportion the number of federal representatives from each state as well as to decide on the amount of direct taxes to be levied. That effort to take stock of the U.S. population every ten years has produced, as a natural by-product, the greatest source of genealogical information available to U.S. researchers.

This book is a comprehensive guide to help researchers effectively locate and use the abundant and valuable U.S. Census records, whether it is the population schedules, state and local census schedules, or special census schedules. The extraordinary developments in technology and vastly increased accessibility to census records in the past several years have made a book like this one necessary. Accordingly, this book contains information on electronic census sources, as well as the companies that provide them.

No other source matches the census record's ability to place people in a certain place at a certain time, or to provide such a detailed picture of lives and lifestyles at given intervals. The promise of that picture, and of seeing it clearly, keeps researchers going against all odds. It is with an awareness of that promise that this book was written. With it, you are well on your way to important findings in the quest to bring your family history to life.
