[APG Public List] US Territories

So someone who was in Alaska, before it acquired statehood would only show in one of these special censuses and not somewhere in the national ones?  Thought there might be a separate listing under them somehow. Something that I haven't looked into before, no need until now.

thanks

Larry

  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.

  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)
