These census reports are products of the AAFA census team. The
initial list of names to be extracted was prepared from a published
census index. The every name extraction was performed using the
Federal microfilm as a source, then verified by another person for
completeness and accuracy.
The census data is not intended to reflect either the "true" facts
or what descendant families believe to be the facts. It is not
guaranteed to be without error. Nevertheless, every attempt has
been made to provide a complete and faithful representation of the
information recorded n the original enumeration forms.
Arranged by county, page and dwelling as censused. For most subjects
the age is expressed in years immediately after the sex entry. In
some cases - particularly with infants - the age is expressed in
months in which case the age column is blank. The age - when
expressed in months - is in the column immediately after age.
The categories on each line appear in the following order: name, sex,
age in years unless stated as months, color (assumed to be white
unless shown otherwise), birth place, *MSR occupation, and real property
value. Birthplace is shown with the approved postal abbreviation for
states in the U.S. Foreign places, if applicable, were abbreviated
using codes created by the AAFA and listed in this table.
*There may be any one or more of three entries to denote:
M=married within the year
S= attended school within the year
R=can't read or write (or just W if can read but not write)
The order of the information in the three-line family header is:
on the first line the political divisions such as wards, towns, township, county, etc.
on the second line microfilm series, roll, and page plus dwelling and family number
on the third line the date the family was enumerated.
The association and the Alford community appreciate the work done by
the AAFA volunteers to make this data available.
