How can I search the 1900 and 1910 US Census by enumeration district?
I want to search two names, using first names only, for relatives who are not turning up otherwise and may have been boarders with another family or in one case may have remarried and I don't know her married name. I know the general area of Philadelphia where they most likely were living and would like to search by most promising enumeration districts, then work outward from there if needed. My search would be first name and a birthdate range. Right now I am reading through every enumeration district and it's very slow!
@SariHarrar SariHarrar I was able to find enumeration district maps at the following link.
1910 maps are images 589 to 623 and 1900 maps are 624 to 640. So, if you know the general area where the people lived you can narrow down the districts you'll have to search through. Have you added the people to FamilySearch Family Tree? If so and you would like help searching, message me the ID's and I'll help.0
@SariHarrar SariHarrar Have you seen this page? https://www.familysearch.org/search/image/index?owc=9BQX-GP8:1030550501,1036056801?cc=13252210
This is a great resource for knowing which ED's are in the ward I'm searching. thank you! I don't see a way to search within an ED, though. do you know how to do it? thanks!0
@SariHarrar SariHarrar Or this one? https://www.familysearch.org/search/image/index?owc=QZZQ-N3H:133638001,143194401?cc=17270330
@SariHarrar SariHarrar If you would like to share the PID of the people you are working on, I'd be happy to help you search.0
@SariHarrar SariHarrar The images are only browsable. I've been browsing this link
to see if I could find an enumeration map for Philadelphia in 1900 or 1910. Haven't found Philadelphia yet. The ones I've viewed so far are mostly for 1940.0
Thank you! I have not uploaded my tree, I'm working on it offline for now. I know which ward and EDs to search, but I don't see how to search only in a single ED.0
