This file is designed to explain the 1820 Lincoln Co TN
annotated census which is uploaded to the Rootsweb
Worldconnect Project at:
The original source of this file is the book version of
the 1820 census which was published by my other in 1970.
I typed that book into an Excel spreadsheet about 1990
and annotated each individual, as best I could, using other
Lincoln Co TN resources.
Once Rootsweb created the Worldconnect system, it became
a priority for me to convert the excel spreadsheet to a GEDCOM
file for uploading to the web. They key to the conversion may
be found in the excellent work by Ted Pack located at:
