U.S Federal Census Extractions (1900)
 
The 1900 population schedules provide the name of each person in the household; address; relationship to the head of the household; color or race; sex; month and year of birth; age at last birthday; marital status; the number of years married; the total number of children born of the mother; the number of those children living; places of birth of each individual and the parents of each individual; if the individual was foreign born, the year of immigration and the number of years in the United States; the citizenship status of foreign-born individuals over age twenty-one; occupation; whether the person could read, write, and speak English; whether the home was owned or rented; whether the home was on a farm; and whether the home was mortgaged.
A note from Patti: Census records included on this web site contain corrections to obvious errors and may also include surnames of married women when known. These extractions are not intended as an exact transcription of the actual census, but as a tool to provide more accurate information for genealogical research. I have taken caution with these additions and/or corrections and done so only in a case where other records indicate there was an obvious error.

Using Ctrl + F to locate a specific name, or using the optional page in which I've listed the surnames extracted for each year, county and state, would produce better results. Also, if you've come to this site via a search engine, I suggest you check the home page for a specific family as I've included several narratives of many of the early families of Clark County, Indiana and their descendants.

If you have questions, comments or corrections, please feel free to email me. Thanks!
