Fulton County Census Page
Before proceeding to the census file there are a few things you should
note. First, eventually the census project will have a search engine
that will work with this data. Right now this file is just a "print-out"
of the data I have input. Also, for some reason the last several columns
of this file are not showing, that's where married in the last year, attended
school in the last year, can't read, deaf, blind, etc. and remarks are located.
Second, this file reflects the transcribers interpretation of the census taker's writing.
The census project is looking for a checker to review the data for it's
accuracy and interpretation. The census taker has rather poor writing, his
capital I and Js are almost identical, he rarely crosses his t's and like
many census takers in the 1800s spelling is often not close to how it should
have been, many census takers had little education and spelled things phonetically,
not the way it should have been spelled. Please take this into account when looking for people, just as
you would if you were looking at the actual census form. We believe the final
search engine will have a soundex feature which will help.
