Census Substitutes & State Census Records, Third Edition, Volume 3 - Northcentral States: by William Dollarhide; 2020; 285 pages; Softbound, 8-1/2 x 11; ISBN 978-1-62859-288-7; FR0483.
In this Third Edition - Vol. 3, William Dollarhide identifies Census Substitutes, as well as State Census Records for ten (10) Northcentral states of the U.S. (Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and North Dakota). The Census Substitutes are those name lists derived from tax lists, directories, military lists, land ownership maps, voter registrations, and other compilations of names of residents for an entire state, portions of a state, or larger counties of a state. Thirty-eight (38) states conducted colonial, territorial, or state censuses that are extant and available for research today.
The 2020 Third Edition was expanded to five volumes, each volume a region of the United States:
Volume 3 – Northeastern States: Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and North Dakota. (10 States).
Since the Second Edition was published in 2016, millions of pages of scanned digital images of Censuses and Census Substitutes came online. The URL links were added to this Third Edition and each of the 50 states & DC has many more citations for newly added online databases and recently digitized microfilm collections. In just three years, the number went from 3,865 to a total of 8,067 hyperlinks.
Why Census Substitutes & State Census Records? There are some huge genealogy look-up sites on the Internet. The main sites all provide the means of searching for a name or a place, starting with a global search screen. They are a good way to find someone when little is known about a person at the onset. But this Shotgun Approach can produce more names/results than you ever thought possible. A better method might be the Sniper Approach: To be more precise, start looking beyond the global search box to find specific types of records available for a certain time period, i.e., look for specific Census Substitute databases. These include name lists of births, marriages, deaths & burials; lists of military units, and lists of veterans, and immigrants, and naturalization records, tax records, land records, probate records, misc. court records, or other databases that reveal the place of residence and much more information about a person of interest. There is no better place to find out what Censuses and Census Substitutes are available for the time period and place a person lived back in time than these five volumes.
