One of the road blocks in locating your ancestor in the Census records occurs when we know where they are living – perhaps even have an address – but for some reason we can’t locate them. Stephen P. Morse web pages can help with many items. This site has links to Ellis Island forms, New York manifests, Castle Garden, other immigration ports, and Census information.
Under Census there are several items:
- Obtaining the Enumeration Districts for 1900-1940 Censuses
- Street Finder
- Enumeration District Definitions
- Census Codes
- Determining Counties
- Changed Street Names
These items might assist you in your census research. Please note that some links send you to fee-based sites.
