U. S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules – June 11, 2020

When I posted – U.S. Census Bureau Releases Household Pulse Survey Results (COVID-19 Related) – May 20, 2020 recently, I was looking for U. S. federal census mortality schedules.

There are a number of sources for the U. S. federal census mortality schedules

U. S. Census Bureau: https://www.census.gov/history/pdf/mortality.pdf (PDF with more information)

Cyndi’s List: https://www.cyndislist.com/us/census/mortality/general/  

Death Indexes: https://www.deathindexes.com/censusmortality.html

FamilySearch: https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/United_States_Census_Mortality_Schedules

German Roots: https://www.germanroots.com/census.html

Mortality Schedules: http://www.mortalityschedules.com/

Mortality-Schedules: http://www.mortality-schedules.com/

These are several examples and websites that address the mortality schedules. It’s important to understand they were for the roughly 12 months prior to the census in question. Also, there can be a fair amount of information on the mortality schedule, depending on who provided the information and how knowledgeable they were about the deceased individual.
