Welcome

to Journey to the Past, I'm Brenda (Glover) Leyndyke and I believe researching your family history is a fascinating journey.

Where in the World is Harry Glover?

22 February 2012

One of the first places genealogists look for information on their ancestors is in census records.  The first United States Federal Census was taken in 1790, and every ten years after.  United States Census records can be found through Family Search and Heritage Quest for free.  Heritage Quest is available through many local libraries.  
The excitement about the 1940 Census being released on 2 April 2012 prompted me to take a look at my census records and see if I was missing any census data for my ancestors.  I decided to blog about my ancestor's census whereabouts to help me find any gaps in my information.  I am starting with my paternal grandfather, Harry Glover, who was recorded as Frank Jr., Frank H. and Harry in the census.
