*If at first you don't find a name, try again under [[Spelling Substitution Tables for the United States and Canada|another spelling]].  
 
*Download a digital image of the page where each ancestor's name appears. Identify where you found it.
 
*Transcribe the entire household onto the appropriate year's [[United States Census Forms|census worksheet]], making note of important information like number of years married, age at first marriage, number of children born to this mother, year of immigration, etc. Information gathered differs for each census.
 
*Look for an ancestor in '''''every''''' census during her or his lifetime.
 
*On the [[Adding a Custom Event to a PAF Family Group Record|family group record]] show&nbsp;each person's census listings.  
 
*Study&nbsp;others in the same household, neighbors, and anyone with the similar names nearby on the census in [[Research a Family in Community Context|community context]]. 
 
*For a list of the exact date of each federal census, see [[Actual census dates|Actual Census Dates]].

+
==Online State and Territorial Censuses==
 +
State censuses are census records that were taken at the state-level rather than at the federal. Often, but not always, a state took their census in ten year increments 5 years from when the Federal Census was taken, such as 1885. State censuses can even serve as substitutes for missing federal censuses. For more information on state censuses, visit [https://www.census.gov/history/www/genealogy/other_resources/state_censuses.html United States Census Bureau].<br><br>
 +
Territorial censuses were taken by the federal government to count the population in federal territories. The government needed to count the population in the territory to see if it could qualify for statehood. For more information on territorial censuses, visit the [[United States Census Territorial|US Territorial Census page]].<br><br>
  
A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.  
+
There were no state censues taken after statehood, but several mission/rancho censuses were taken under the Spanish and Mexican governments.
