The recording of today's webinar by The Board for Certification of Genealogists and Denise E. Cross, MSLIS, CG, "They Had Names: Identifying Children Represented by Tick Marks in Pre-1850 Censuses" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/BCG for free for a limited time.
Early nineteenth century censuses represented children in a household with nameless tick marks in gender and age categories. Their identities can be discovered despite the absence of birth records by using the tick marks to determine an approximate birth year then build an exhaustively researched FAN for the head of household. Correlation tools, geographic proximity in land records and later censuses, and ruling out same named individuals, all provide the indirect evidence to give names to the tick marks.
