          It is often necessary to search several censuses to find and prove relationships.[edit | edit source]

Step 1. Search for your ancestor in the1850 and 1860 U.S. Census[edit | edit source]

  • Establish the parents and children of this family in the earliest censuses where they can be found.
  • Always look at the original record, not just the index or transcript.

Step 2. Search for your ancestor in the 1880 U.S. Census.[edit | edit source]

  • Look for married children with a parent living with them by searchng for the parent's name.

Tip:  Parents are often found in the census records living with their married children. It is a good way to substantiate relationships and find additional family members.

Step 4: Add new information to Family Tree.[edit | edit source]

  • Add any newly found family members to the Family Tree.
  • Be sure and check for any possible duplicates found in the Family Tree.
  • Prepare temple work by clicking on green arrows found in the Tree and follow the directions on the page.
