==== IA-CENSUS-LOOKUP Mailing List ====
In the U.S., a census has been taken every 10 years from 1790 through
2000. All censuses taken after 1930 are still confidential and the
information they contain is not open to the public. The census from 1790
through 1840 only named the head of the household and the numbers of
people in categories - 3 males over 16, 2 males under 16, etc. The
census from 1850 through 1930 lists each member of the household and
usually gives the relationship to the head of the house. It also gives
age (1900 gives birth month and year) and place of birth (state or
foreign country). The 1890 census was almost totally destroyed by fire
so there is a 20 year gap between 1880 and 1900.
Census images 1901, 1891, 1881 and 1871, plus so much more.
