1790 Census Index, U.S. Selected Counties

Pinpoint a family’s location at a particular time. When you know where a family lived, you know where to look for other important records, such as county records of births, marriages, and deaths. Also, with the information from the census index, you can find a copy of the original census record. Depending on the census year, you may learn more important family information, such as the names, ages, and birthplaces of the other individuals in the household.
