Hey there people! (:

So yesterday I started my genealogy hunt. I got my mom (who is apparently very french) all the ay back to the 1400's. My dad I got to the 1950's............... I have no leafs on his side and I can't seem to find anything online. Last name is Mensch, grandmas maiden name is Harrison. What other resources should I be using?

Thanks!

1940 is the last available census at this time.

Facts you should know about the early census records –

All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++



You wrote - "... all the ay back to the 1400's."
What sources did you use to track your mother's side back to the 1400"s ?????????????

Need 1st name + DOB + birthplace for your mother.

Need 1st name + DOB + birthplace for your father.

Mother Karen Fezzey 1960 (unknown birthplace)
Father Kevin Mensch 1964 in Frankfurt Germany

for my mom I sued birth certs and marriage certs, and I know my grandparetns and my great grandparents, also a lot of if was previously documented by a genealogist in our family so that helped.

But my dads side eh.
