"Why and Wherefore of Non-Population Census Records" 
by Everett B. Ireland, CG
Where does one find non-population schedules and what do they tell us about our Ancestors? These are typically referred to as “Occupational Schedules of the Federal Censuses: Agriculture, Industrial and Manufacturing, Mining and Fisheries.” Many of these original schedules are hard to locate and have been lost or destroyed over the years. Those remaining are valuable additions to the facts about our ancestor’s lives. The non-population schedules for 1850 and subsequent years have mostly survived but are located in a number of repositories across the country. Many have been digitized and indexed and are now accessible on subscription websites like These will be covered during my lecture.

What about things like high school diplomas, Sunday School certificates, certificates of appreciation for years of service, or funeral home cards?
