Census

U.S. enumerators were suppose to record the household's information as of the official census day -- not the actual date of the enumeration. Of course, we have no way of knowing who followed these instructions and who did not. However, the official census days were:
First Monday in August for 1790-1820 schedules
June 1 for 1830-1880
First Monday in June for 1890 (most of this schedule was destroyed
or badly damaged by a fire in 1921)
June 1 for 1900
April 15 for 1910
January 1 for 1920
April 1, for 1930

1940 & Later Census Records can be obtained................

According to the National Archives and Records Administration the 1940 and later censuses are not available to the public use due to a statutory 72-year restriction on access for privacy reasons. (92 Stat. 915; Public Law 95-416; October 5, 1978).

To make application (named person, family or legal representatives only) for this restricted information, visit the United States Census Bureau "age search" service where they will "search the confidential records from the Federal population censuses of 1940 to 1990 and issue an official transcript of the results (for a congressionally mandated fee)."  This fee is
$40.00.
