Description: xxvi, 420 pages : chiefly maps ; 23 x 29 cm
Contents: "The Map Guide shows county outline maps at ten-year intervals, the old county boundaries being superimposed over the modern lines. These maps are designed for historians, genealogists, and demographers who use the name lists and statistics of the censuses, but will help anyone seeking some sense of county boundary changes. The maps begin with 1790, the earliest federal census, and end with 1920 in anticipation of the release of the name lists of that census in 1992. Thus there are maps for all federal censuses until the 1930 lists are released in the year 2002. The phrase 'all federal censuses' needs clarification, since Congress sometimes encouraged states and ordered territories to take special censuses. A map has been included if the name lists went to Washington, as did the lists for 1885 and Minnesota 1857." --
Pref. This book also contains: a history of census growth ; a precis of technical facts about each census ; a discussion of census accuracy ; an essay on the sources available for identifying each state's old county lines ; and a statement with each map indicating which county census lists survive and which are lost.
Other Titles: Map guide to the United States federal censuses, 1790-1920.
Responsibility: William Thorndale and William Dollarhide.
