Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about the non-population schedules of the U.S. Federal Census. We also discuss the Veteran’s Schedule of 1890, which is technically a special schedule. Alice Childs joins us again to discuss census records and shares examples from her own research in the mid-Atlantic states. We talk about how these census records can help add historical context to our ancestor’s lives. Join us as we discuss the agricultural schedules, social statistics schedules, mortality schedules, and more.
