description The first time that an Archivist flashed a census before my wondering eyes, I was shocked. Was this scanty listing of "heads of household'' (augmented only by the age groups into which other, unnamed, family members fell) the cause of so much genealogical excitement? Could it have been for such that the Davidian census-takers had brought down a plague upon the House of Israel (I Samuel: 21)? To a serious genealogist like myself, the census appeared to be a meagre offering indeed. So, I turned away in some disgust, convinced that I would never again seek out a census. And for what seemed like a very long time, but was in reality only a couple of years, there was a rather headlong involvement on my part with cemetery, probate, church, and wel l . . . land records.
