I've been thinking about doing another pre-1850 census analysis article for an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues. I did one over a year ago, but am thinking that it might be time for another.
This was one of the topics at the recent Tennessee Genealogical Society seminar I gave recently in Memphis and I think there's some additional comments, suggestions and methods I'd like to discuss. One of the concepts I tried to get across was the importance (in my opinion) of analyzing the pre-1850 census information by itself to see what family structure emerged--at least initially. I think it's best to look at this information without bringing in pre-conceived ideas of what you are trying to prove.
If you think another pre-1850 census article is a good idea, either comment to this post or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
