U.S. census records are an invaluable resource for genealogists with ties to the United States. Conducted every 10 years, they typically record the members of a household, their ages, places of birth, residence, occupation, immigration and citizenship details, marriage information, military service, and more. The breadth of their coverage makes them a critical resource for researching family history in the U.S.
