[APG Public List] US Territories

Larry,

Once an area was considered a US Territory, census records were ususally kept.  Some of these were special censuses, meaning that they were not necessarily kept at the regular 10 year interval that censuses were kept for the then current states of the US.  You might find a census every year or so because the US government needed to know how many people were living in that territory.  Some of these censuses are statistical and some list the heads of household and the number of people living in it.  It really depends upon the reason that the census was taken.

Jeanette

Haven't time to look this up, so a quick question here:  what about territories (like Alaska, but also current ones) and the US censuses?  Where included?
 
looking for missing person (missing from census, that is)
