With this series of genealogical guides, William Dollarhide continues his long tradition of writing books that family historians find useful in their day-to-day United States research. Bill’s Censuses & Substitute Name List guides give a state-by-state listing of what name lists are available, where to find them, and how they can be used to further one’s research.

Censuses & substitute name lists are key to success in any genealogical endeavor. Name lists, be they national, state, county, or even city or town in scope, can help nail down the precise place where one’s ancestor may have lived. And if that can be done, further records, usually found on a local level, will now be accessible to research. But success depends on knowing where the ancestor resided. This is where Dollarhide’s Censuses & Substitute Name List guides can make the difference.

Not only does this volume give a detailed bibliography of censuses & substitute name lists available for the state, but links to websites, FHL book & microfilm numbers, archive references, maps, and key historical information make this volume invaluable to the researcher looking to extend their lines and fill in the family tree.

William Dollarhide is best known as the co-author and cartographer of Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, a book of 393 census year maps, and one of the bestselling titles ever published in the field of genealogy. Mr. Dollarhide currently lives in Washington. He has written numerous guidebooks related to genealogical research.

I recommend it to any genealogist, beginner or advanced, that had ancestors in the state. - Leland K. Meitzler, Editor -, Publisher - Family Roots Publishing Co., LLC
