  •  Notes 
    • Enumeration for the twelfth census of the United States began on 1 June 1900. Enumerators were to complete it within thirty days. Communities with a population of 10,000 or greater were to be completed within two weeks. June 1, 1900 appears in the heading for many individuals "in this family" because all responses were to reflect the individual's status as of that date, even if the status had changed between 1 June and the actual day of enumeration. Therefore, children born between June 1 and the actual date were not to be listed; people who had died between June 1 and the actual date were to be listed as alive, etc. However, it is important to note that sometimes the enumerator disregarded this instruction. The 1900 census provides the exact month and year of birth for each individual and records the number of years couples were married. It also states how many children had been born to the mother and how many were still living. It also gives the street and house numbers for urban households and the birthplace (state or country) for the parents of each individual. The enumerator also recorded the marital status of each individual, any illness or disability in the family at the time, and the number of months an individual was unemployed for that year. This census also asked about the citizenship status of each individual. If the individual emigrated to the US, the enumerator recorded the year of arrival and the naturalization date if naturalized. This census indicates whether a home or a farm was owned or rented and whether the owned property was free from mortgage. It also stated if the person was a Civil War veteran or the widow of a Civil War veteran. A separate Indian schedule was used to document the tribe or band of Native Americans. If a Native American schedule cannot be located within a county, look at all the schedules for a state. The 1900 census records the date of arrival to the United States, naturalization information, age of individuals and birth place. This recorded information makes this census extremely important for tracing movements of immigrant ancestors as well as supplementing or replacing lost vital records of birth. Other relatives listed with the family in the census can help identify the maiden name of the mother as well as the surnames of married daughters. Cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, in-laws, and other family members listed with the relationship, give great clues to unravel the family ties. If the individual was an immigrant and listed a year of immigration on the census, you can begin looking for the ship's passenger list for that individual.
