The New Orleans of George Washington Cable : the 1887 Census Office report by George Washington Cable( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneering local-color writer about Creole New Orleans and a public advocate for black equality in his native South during and after Reconstruction, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) depicted in his writing the clash between American newcomers and a quaint but proud French-speaking population in post-Louisiana Purchase New Orleans. His work, including the short-story collection Old Creole Days (1879) and his most famous novel, The Grandissimes (1880), received widespread critical acclaim and was serialized in the country's best highbrow magazines. In 1880, Cable was commissioned to write a "historical sketch" of pre-Civil War New Orleans for a special section of the Tenth U.S. Census. Although subsequently revised and published as Creoles of Louisiana, Cable's original piece never appeared in print again except as a facsimile reprint. With The New Orleans of George Washington Cable, Lawrence N. Powell presents this rare text in its entirety for the first time, including Cable's copious footnotes and other material deleted from the original census publication by its editors."--Jacket
Heads of families at the first census of the United States taken in the year 1790: South Carolina by United States( Book )

20 editions published between 1908 and 1998 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The original 1790 enumerations covered the present states of Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, and Virginia. Unfortunately, not all the schedules have survived, the returns for the states of Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Virginia having been lost or destroyed, possibly when the British burned the Capitol at Washington during the War of 1812, though there seems to be no proof for this. For Virginia, taxpayer lists made in the years 1782-1785 have been reconstructed as replacements for the original returns" -- publisher website (December 2008)

4 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Index to the 1830 Census of Georgia contains the names of 52,000 Georgia heads of household, giving for each the county of residence and page number in the census where his name appears. Individuals are indexed alphabetically by surname. A particularly interesting feature of the book is the method of dealing with variant spellings: all names of like sound are grouped together, the variants being arranged in order of the most frequently used spelling, so the researcher is unlikely to miss a name through oversight or carelessness"--Publisher website (December 2008)
