    Census Records are wonderful for the beginning researcher as they exhibit the family as it appeared in given years showing everyone in the family. Once identified we have years of birth, so we can more easily find them in the birth records for a county.


    Census Records have been expained on Cyndi's HOWELL'S Web Site beautifully; therefore, I will refer the beginner, family and professional genealogist to her site. Please take a few minutes to review these sites, especially if you are beginning to catch the genealogy bug. With that said I will go through each census for Fauquier County, Virginia.


    Please be careful when considering a purchase of Census Records from various suppliers. Shop around as there are lots of good deals out there and lots of JUNK. Use census records from libraries, LDS Family History Centers, before ordering. Cyndi's List has several suppliers who sell them.
