These census reports are products of the AAFA census team. The initial list of names to be extracted
was prepared from a published census index. The every name extraction was performed using the Federal
microfilm as a source, then verified by another person for completeness and accuracy.
The census data is not intended to reflect either the "true" facts or what descendant families believe
to be the facts. It is not guaranteed to be without error. Nevertheless, every attempt has been made
to provide a complete and faithful representation of the information recorded n the original enumeration
Arranged by county, page and dwelling as censused. For most subjects the age is expressed in years
immediately after the sex entry. In some cases - particularly with infants - the age is expressed in
months in which case the age column is blank. The age - when expressed in months - is in the column
immediately after age.
The categories on each line appear in the following order: name, sex, age in years unless stated as
months, color (assumed to be white unless shown otherwise), birth place, MSR*
occupation, and real property value. Birthplace is shown with the approved postal abbreviation for
states in the U.S. Foreign places, if applicable, were abbreviated using codes created by the AAFA
and listed in this table.
* There may be any one or more of three entries to denote:
M = married within the year
S = attended school within the year
R = can't read or write (or just W if can read but not write)
The order of the information in the three-line family header is:
on the first line the political divisions such as wards, towns, township, county, etc.
on the second line microfilm series, roll, and page plus dwelling and family number
on the third line the date the family was enumerated.
The association and the Alford community appreciate the work done by the AAFA volunteers to make this
