Great Resource: University of Virginia Library Historical Census Browser

This database has been up for a few years, but I think that it deserves another mention.

The University of Virginia Library has compiled the population and other statistics for all of the federal censuses from 1790-1960.  You can select which statistics to view and compare, and view all 50 states or by county within states.  These databases are statistical only, and contain no information on specific households.

But this statistical information is nearly as important as the actual census returns themselves, for it provides context.  As much time as we spend investigating our ancestors, we must also remember that they did not live in a Family Group Record world.  They were members of a community, and the demographic information contained in this database will tell you about that community.

Some of the information is particularly useful for genealogists, if you compare your family to the statistics for the county in which they lived.  Information on the population by size of household, gender, age, and race, information on the ownership and size of farms, occupations, religion, etc., are all available for searching.

Family Bible – Haight/Fite (Schuyler Co., New York)

I bought this small Bible on eBay last year.  I would love to return it to the family.
The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  London: Oxford University Press, undated.  The book contains the New Testament and the Psalms.  It measures approximately 10 cm x 7 cm x 2 cm.  Inside the front cover is written "Charles Haight" and "1908".  "Charles Haight" is scribbled over, and the initials "M J H" and the name "Mary Jane" and date "1908" — apparently in a child’s handwriting — are written.
The following entries are handwritten on the blank pages in the back:
Helen Mae Fite
Born April 24, 1906
Charles Nathan Haight
Born Aug. 9, 1900
Married July 7, 1924
Richard Charles Haight
Born Apri. 26, 1930
Baptized Oct. 19, 1930
by Arthur B. Hess
Mary Jane Haight
Born Sept 6, 1934
Baptized June 9, 1935
by Rev. Clayton Griswald
The 1930 U. S. Census contains the following family:
Charles Haight, age 29, b. New York (both parents b. New York)
Helen [Haight], age 23, b. Pennsylvania (both parents b. Pennsylvania)

The Social Security Death Index has the following entries:

Helen F. Haight, b. 24 Apr 1906, d. 14 Mar 1998, Watkins Glen, Schuyler Co., New York; SS#061-20-1815
