Good Sense Census Tips:

The 1910 census questions get even more extensive and we learn more and more about our ancestors.

Soundex: The 1910 census was "soundexed".  The soundexing system uses a numbering system for letters allowing a name to  be  indexed by the way it sounds, rather than the way it is spelled.  The 1910 census was indexed by Soundex / Miracode indexing, however not all states were indexed. before the government halted this process due to the need for employees to work in the war efforts.  Unfortunately for those of us pursuing our family history, the indexing was never resumed.

States which did get soundexed for 1910 are: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.  These indexes have been recorded on microfilm which is housed at NARA, the LDS Library in Salt Lake City and various libraries.

Veterans of the Civil War were listed as survivors on the 1910 census.  This is a nice little tidbit of information and can help you find your Civil War ancestors and perhaps locate their military records and or pension files.  These military documents can lead to a plethora of information about your ancestors.

The 1910 Census features separate Indian population schedules.  These Indian schedules records the Indian Tribe or Band the person was a member of.
