US Census, a primary source of my information

US Census

Our US Constitution mandates a count (Census) of all residents be taken every 10 years but the questions asked have varied since the very first enumeration in 1790 when George Washington was the President. There is a 72 year ‘freeze’ on the public’s ability to view the actual census records. The most recent one we can see now is 1930 (as of 25 February 2012) but the 1940 US Census will be available on 2 April 2012.Our Block and Bloom ancestors first appeared on the 1860 US Census (the eighth enumeration) and I’ve expanded to list the 1850 Census. As conditions changed in the country, the set of questions asked was modified.

These bulleted links jump to the list of questions asked in the Census.
