Blank census forms

 
Are there blank census forms available that I can use to take notes?
 

ProQuest digitized The Census Book by William Dollarhide and added it to HeritageQuest® Online. It contains blank forms for the years 1790-1930. You must have Adobe Reader installed to view and print the forms. There are two ways to access the forms:

Method One

  1. From the HeritageQuest® Online home page, click Search Census.
  2. Perform a census name search.
    You see the Census Results summary screen.
  3. On the left side of the screen, click Help with the Federal Census.
    You see a Census Book page (window).
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click the link Section 5: Census Forms, 1790-1930.
    The forms will open in Adobe Reader. (For modem users, it may take a few minutes to load the Reader and the forms.)

You can press the Page Down key (or click on the bookmarks to the left) to find the exact form for the census year required.

Method Two

  1. From the HeritageQuest® Online home page, click Search Census.
  2. Click the Help? button at the top of the screen (part of the HeritageQuest Online banner).
  3. You should now be in the Search Census help page. Click the Back to Table of Contents link at the top of the page.
  4. From within the Help Table of Contents page, look for the Search Census help section. Click on the link Learn More About the Census.
  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the Census Book page and click on the link Section 5: Census Forms, 1790-1930.
    The forms will open inside Adobe Reader. (For modem users, it may take a few minutes to load the Reader and the forms.)

Once you have loaded the forms, you can use the Page Down key (or click on the bookmarks to the left) to find the exact census form for the year you are researching.
