YOGSOH GUERNSEY-02:  GUERNSEY COUNTY, OHIO 1820 FEDERAL CENSUS.  By Helen Pate Ross.  24 pages, heavy cardstock covers.  You will be so thrilled that this author has done this census for you when you read her note tucked modestly at the very back of this book.  She says, “This was without a doubt the poorest written smeared copy I have worked on so far. In places it looks like a page was turned over wet and smeared on the next page.”  [This indicates she had done more of these in the past.  Because genealogists who do this type of tedious, repetitive, eye-straining work for the benefit of the rest of us who use their work and thereby do NOT experience the eyestrain and having to read the entire census to locate the one line that has our ancestor’s name on it, do this out of a love for this hobby and a desire to help others for which we should be eternally grateful!]  She even offers to drive to the next town and get a microfilm copy of the page(s) you might need to see for yourself if she got it exactly right for $3.  The 1820 census has only one name per household.  Everyone who lived in that household, related or not, was enumerated by sex and thereunder by age.  Here you have 24 pages done for you and indexed.  This does contain all the sex and age numbers as given on the census.  Surnames that appear on three (,) or more pages (#) may represent far more people than three if they lived close together in adjoining households they would appear in the index on only one page, but could represent 3, 4, or even more households.  Adair, Anders(e/o)n, Armstrong, Arnold, Akley, Baker, Bay, Beall 4,   Beaton, Bell 4, Berry 4, Boyd 4, Bratton 4, Brill, Brown 8, Campbell 6, Carpenter 3, Clark 5, Collins, Cunningham 4, Davis 6, Findley, Frame, Gibson, Graham 4, Gray, Green 3, Hall 4, Hanna, Henry 4, Hill, Huffman, Hughs 5, Hutchinson, Johnson 9, Jones, Kirkpatrick, Lang, Larriner, Lindsey, Little, Long 6, Low, Marsh, Marshall 5, Mast(er/ie) s 5, Miller 6, Moore 4, Morris, Mullen, Murphy 4, Mcannel 4, McCoy, Neel, Orr 4, Patterson, Philip, Pollack 4, Reed 4, Robinson 5, Ross 4, Scott 5, Shipley 4, Smith 11, Starr,Stator, Stevin 4, Stewart 8, Tedricks 4, Thomas, Thompson 7, White 4, Wiers 5, Wilkins 4, Williams 7, Wilson 10 and Wine.   PRICE:  $6
