1900 Index Description


Please read the following numbered code for the headings of the 1900 census schedule. It was very difficult to put ALL of the information from the schedules on these pages and in doing so, it was necessary to number the headings rather than typing them into the appropriate boxes. It was also necessary to take out some information from its original place and put it elsewhere and these instances will also be explained below:
