More census & voter lists yet to come–including the 1940 Census!

President William Howard Taft, Hanover, Pennsylvania, USA, 1909. Must be a whistle-stop–or is that a whistle-stump?{;>)

Oh my gosh! It won’t be long until the 1940 is rocking the genealogy research house. In the meantime, there is so much to do on the other censuses–or is it censi? a href=”http://searchcensus.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/1910-banner-magnification.gif”>

German Census? More & more becoming available!

Photo is of the UK 1911 Census books.

They are indeed Limited, but if the German Census is available for your area in your time-frame, then great.

Some Germans even migrated to the United Kingdom.

Contact us for not only German Census work, but also professional German Genealogy research by a couples team with 30+ years experience for just one of them! After all, why do YOU think Ancestry.com hired this couple as THE very 1st two persons for their Paid Expert Ancestry.com Research Line? How about an 80% success ratio in finding what their international subscribers from Australia to Austria could NOT find! Then Karl was THE primary German Genealogy research consultant for Ancestry.de (as in Deutschland!)

I have disproven every client who claimed that his/her German ancestors were American Indian.

Johann Schmidt was not likely an American Indian!

The 1885-1940 USA Indian Census is beefed up at Ancestry.com! If you cannot find what you seek, hire us. 1-888-456-7252 karlmsala@msn.com

Online Census Websites Comparison Pages! Nice!

Written by Kathi:

Many commercial genealogy websites, such as Ancestry.com, Genealogy.com, and Heritage Quest have posted on-line census images with linked indexes. The LDS site also has some offerings. But many people find they are confused about the offerings of each website.

Which site has an every-name index? Which indexes are complete and for which years? Are the census images complete? Who offers soundex and advanced search?

To help understand the census offerings online, you may find the Census Comparison Chart helpful.

Census Comparison Chart

Karl Sala says: You gotta love this, but go to the site for better graphics & to enable the links. My 1stborn son says I only have enough computer knowledge to be dangerous. But, he further claims that he has enough knowledge to be VERY dangerous {;>) I believe him! He is a DBA Database Administrator consultant for some multi-million $ corporations & non-business entities.

*A soundex search is a way of searching for a surname the way it is pronounced, rather than the way it is spelled. Using a soundex search is a way of expanding your search to include possible transcription errors or census enumerator spelling variations.

**The Miracode index uses the same phonetic code and abbreviations as the Soundex index, but the method of recording the census page reference is different. The Miracode index card lists county, volume, ED, and the sequential family number assigned by the census taker, whereas the Soundex index shows the county, volume, ED, sheet, and line numbers.

***The 1790 through the 1840 census enumerate only the head of household. An index labeled “head of household” for the 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, and 1840 census is in actuality an “every name” index.

****Details of AIS Head of Household Census indexes available by state

Also Note: Limited census transcriptions can be found at Rootsweb and the Census Project run by USGenWeb.

1940 Census Release Date

http://www.1940census.net/1940_census_release_date.php

1940 Census Release Date
The 1940 U.S. Federal Census was conducted based on a census date of April 1, 1940. Given the seventy-two year privacy restriction, family historians will need to wait until April 1, 2012 before they can inspect schedules from the sixteenth census of the United States. The census counted a total of nearly 132.2 million people living in 48 states.

Since April 1st falls on a Sunday in 2012, we may all need to wait an additional day to access the schedules, but perhaps genealogists will be able to pressure officials to stick to the 1940 census release date . . . . Sunday or not.
Just 322 days until the 1940 Census release date!

— We will, for you, professionally Search 1790 to 1940 Census Records —

Questions Asked on the 1940 Census
The Bureau of the Census (Department of Commerce) provided standardized forms in 1940 for all Enumerators as in previous years. The standard Population Schedule had 34 questions and more than a dozen Supplemental Questions asked only for those persons who were enumerated on specified lines. This was the means used to ensure a random nature in obtaining supplemental information. Learn more about Questions Asked on the 1940 Census.

1940 Map of the United States
By 1940, the outline of the United States and the individual borders for the 48 contiguous states had become familiar to many, both in America and elsewhere throughout the world. The American Flag would display 48 stars, one for each state, for more than four decades. Those researching their family history are encouraged to understand the geographic area where their ancestors lived. This is especially true if your ancestors lived in the northeast or in border towns. It’s possible that a move just a few miles away could result in a new state of residence. View 1940 Map of the U.S..

1940 Census — Street Transcription Project
On 01 April 2012, the 1940 Census will be released from the 72-year privacy mandate and family historians will flood to National Archives in search of ancestors. BUT there will not be an index available and so researchers will be required to know the Enumeration District in the city or town where their ancestors lived. If you would like to help in this effort, visit www.stevemorse.org for more details about a project to create a free time-saving tool for your fellow genealogists throughout the world.

Other Useful Sites for Genealogy & Family History Research
As you research your family history, you will quickly realize the 1940 census is not the only source, nor can any one source answer all your questions. This is true for original source material, physical archives, and those archives that have been digitized and transcribed for online searching via the Internet.

The 1940 U.S. Federal Census release date is scheduled for April 1, 2012. Since this date falls on a Sunday, it is unlikely that 1940 census
schedules will be available for genealogy research or public inspection until the following day. It is not yet known if any commercial or nonprofit
organizations will be releasing the 1940 census online. As we receive updates, we’ll be sure to update our 1940 census site.

Our 58th kudo since 2008 was recently posted by a former director of Deutsche Bank USA!


“With the birth of our first child, my wife and I were seeking a genealogist to assist in our German heritage. Karl and his wife, Lynell, have been fantastic. While still a work in progress (which can probably be said about most things in this world) the results so far have been great – they have assisted in going back to the ancestral villages in southern Germany for what is already more than 9 generations of family (he even found a number of lost relatives that we are now in touch with!). His skill with the language and ability to make sense of many of these historical German documents has been key in getting to where he has – a process we know we would never be able to do ourselves.
I look forward to continuing to work with him in this endeavor.

Joe Lau
Service Category: Genealogist Year first hired: 2011
Top Qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity

For Joe Lau, we first found his ancestors in each & every possible USA Census after their arrival! Interestingly, we also found his immigrant ancestor’s US Patent for a car brake. We posted those data, documents & images & reports on Ancestry.com & Box.net! There the images & full reports are available to anyone whom he or we wish! Call us today to get your USA & German census & parish research done! His living father & other family members are ecstatic about our having found hundreds of ancestral family members!

“Karl! Help me find my ancestors–before I become one!”
