Recently, I published a new book, Rhode Island State Census for Genealogists. I’m excited to help people understand this incredible resource which spans the colonial era through 1935.

The book includes:

  • A new recreation of all 1865-1935 state census headers
  • Tips and insights from the census publications and enumerator’s instructions including “household” rules, abbreviations, instructions for coverage when the residents can’t be reached, and any copying process used
  • Town formation guide and map
  • Where to find each year’s pages online; websites, search tips, missing districts, and sort order
  • Information about the colonial census collections that identify Rhode Islanders in the Revolutionary War era including where to find the best versions
  • Insights into the wide range of questions; some of them quite unusual
  • A sample citation for each of the years 1865-1935

Eventually, this book will be part of a series that covers Rhode Island genealogy in-depth.

The 63-page book sells for $14.99.
