Posted by Jim Sanders on Monday, 24 December, 2012

Have you ever wondered if there’s a 1890 census substitute which identifies children? Well there’s a great resource if they survived. That resource is a school register. Here’s the school register from the Great Hill School in Seymour, Connecticut for the academic year of 1892-93. Many school registers include the actual birth date in the data they collect. Unfortunately, this one didn’t.
