Index To The 1810 Census Of Virginiaby Elizabeth Petty Bentley
This Index to the 1810 Census of Virginia is a model reference work. The index itself, of course, consists of an alphabetical list of the heads of households in the 1810 federal census of Virginia--85,000 persons--with tabular entries showing county of residence and the page number of the census schedule. In addition, this work contains an informative Introduction, which sets forth a statement of methodology, suggestions for the researcher in dealing with irregular spellings and transcriptions, and a description of the contents of the original census returns. Following the Introduction are two tables that further describe the mechanics of the index and supply information that might prove useful to the researcher. Note: Enumerations of the following counties are missing: Cabell, Grayson, Greenbrier, Halifax, Hardy, Henry, James City, King William, Lee, Louisa, Mecklenburg, Nansemond, Northampton, Orange, Patrick, Pittsylvania, Russell, and Tazewell.
