|Norman Rockwell's The Census Taker|
- 1940 is the most recent census available to the public.
- Nearly the entire 1890 census was destroyed by a fire.
- The census taker often misspelled your ancestor’s name.
- Other information (race, date of birth, age, additional/missing children, etc.) about your ancestor might be incorrect or vary widely from census to census.
