Census

NOTE: U.S. enumerators were supposed to record the household’s information as of the official census day — not the actual date of the enumeration. Of course, we have no way of knowing who followed these instructions and who did not. However, the official census days were:

First Monday in August for 1790-1820 schedules
June 1 for 1830-1880
First Monday in June for 1890 (most of this census was destroyed
or badly damaged by a fire in 1921)
June 1 for 1900
April 15 for 1910
January 1 for 1920
April 1, for 1930
