Every time I needed to find the headings for census records or find if a particular census was available or get ideas about what types of records might help me break down a brick wall, I would have to stop and look up the information. I developed these cheat sheets to have a ready reference that was easy to carry and use and therefore would save me some time.
When I am on the road--at a courthouse, library or state archive, I don't have to wonder if they will have a reference book that will provide me with this basic information.
This series of cheat sheets will provide you with a quick reference of information that will be helpful in your research. By having these you will not have to rely on the library to have the books that would have this information, nor spend the time looking up a needed date or procedure.
