Genealogy: Census of 1850 included agricultural, industry schedules

Along with the mortality schedules, discussed in the Sept. 30 column, the 1850 federal census included agricultural schedules (found also in 1860, 1870, and 1880) and manufacturing/industry schedules (found also in 1820, 1860, 1870, and 1880). Although usually overlooked, these schedules are likely to be a great help for family researchers if they can be located and inspected. As a group, these are referred to as “nonpopulation” census schedules. for more click here
