My Census Project

Something I want to do to organize my personal genealogical research is a census project. In a 3-ring binder, I want to catalog census pages for my direct ancestors for each census they were living, from 1790 to 1940. In the binder, I plan to separate them by census year, then by surname, so I will have the census image along with citation, at my fingertips when needed. I was very thankful that Ancestry dot com had free census search this holiday weekend. I needed new copies since some of mine are marked up with notes.

Note to self: Buy page dividers!

A daunting challenge!
