22 Nov 2005 DearMYRTLE's Family History Hour
This is the lineup for today's show, now available for you to listen to 24/7 on the web. Please also note the "Links We Mention" and "Listening to the Show" directions below. Elizabeth Powell Crowe, author of Genealogy Online, returns to discuss mortality schedules. This may be useful if you suspect an ancestor died during the 12 months prior to census day on some of the more recent US federal enumerations When Myrt Googled for mortality schedules, some of these sites came up on the hit list:
- Ancestry's (fee based) U.S. Federal Census
Mortality Schedules database, 1850-1880 "Because
each of the censuses from 1850-1880 began on June 1, "previous year" refers to the 12 months preceding June 1, or June 1 (of the previous year) to May 31 (of the census year). This database contains an index to all individuals
enumerated in these mortality schedules. In addition, each individual is
linked to the census image on which they appear. Not all information that is
recorded on the actual census is included in the index. Therefore, it is
important that you view the image on which your ancestor is recorded to obtain
all possible information about him/her."
