      Need a little more information. Here's things that will help a
      researcher know he has the right person.
      Date of Birth
      Place of Birth
      Date of Death
      Place of Death
      Funeral date and Cemetery of Interment
      Spouse (Maiden Name)
      Wedding date
      Place of Wedding
      Spouse's Date and Place of Birth
      Spouse's Date and Place of Death
      Spouse's Funeral date and Cemetery of Interment
      Names of children
      Data like above
      Name of Father
      Data like above
      Maiden Name of Mother
      Data like above
      The more of this information you can provide the easier it will be to
      find them and insure that the person you are researching are the right
      ones. When listing places if you know it the Name of County is crucial
      because all census are done by county. Look at my letters to Nancy for
      tips. Also to Nancy and the group one other site I would like to


      US GenWeb had a census project in which volunteers (Like myself)
      transcribe census images into text files which are posted on the web for
      free viewing. This project is **far** from complete, but it's worth a
      look. Keep coming back to it because it is updated every week. The
      national project manager was the only one preparing the files for
      uploading and she had some family emergencies last year and a back log
      got created. Now there are other people assisting her and the backlog is
      starting to get cleared up. One other link:


      This is also part of the US GenWeb project and is where volunteers look
      to see what counties are available for transcription. If you choose a
      state and a year (census are taken in the US every 10 years in the year
      ending with a 0, Canada and UK is every 10 years ending in 1) it will
      show you a chart of counties. Look in the "links" column. Some of the
      companies which sell census CDs donate low resolution images of census.
      If there are some for the county and year that you are looking for there
      will be a link in that column. These images can be downloaded to your
      hard drive by right clicking on the link and clicking on "Save Picture
      As..." in the pop-up menu.

      Hope this helps everybody. Happy hunting!
