Tuesday's Tip - Inputting Data on the 1860 Census, Schedule 2

1860 U.S. Federal Census, Schedule 2
Last week I posted the 1860 U.S. Federal Census, Schedule 1.  This week I've posted the form for the Slave Schedule for this 1860 (Schedule 2).

This Schedule is almost identical to the one I posted previously, so rather than a long rambling about it all, I will direct you to the former post here for the details.

There were only 2 federal censuses that had the Slave Schedule.  Emancipation was on it's way, although I'm sure it still seem so far away to those living through 1860.

The only difference on this Schedule 2 from the last (aside from the year) is the tally section at the bottom of the sheet.

As always, if you have any difficulties with the form (downloading, inputting, saving, etc) just let me know and we'll figure out how to fix it.  So far, there haven't been any issues since the very first census form.  Let's hope my luck holds out!  The forms still appear to be 3 pages long when viewed through Google Docs, but rest assured that when you download it, it will be one page!

Next week we move on to one of the first censuses that we genealogists/family historians love...the 1870 U.S. Federal Census.  Finally, lots more info to make our little hearts happy! 

Until next time, have fun tending those roots!

Have You Heard About the Newest App???

If you haven't heard the Federation of Genealogical Societies has an app for your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

If you haven't heard about it and you are hearing it from me for the first time, then you really need to get out more!

Either way, head on over to the FGS Voice to read all about it!
