Which census was that?

If you’re accustomed to looking at census documents for genealogy research, you know that the the number of the census (Thirteenth, for example) is clearly visible, while the actual year takes a little squinting to see. I created a simple table so that I can tell at a glance which census I’m looking at. I hope you find it as handy as I do. (You can easily download a version via the Printables tab above.)

Use this table to see at a glance which census you're looking at.
