Having the the Mexico 1930 National Census images available online was a pretty significant event for Hispanic genealogy. For the first time a major Latin American collection had been published online for free. It definitely marked a turning point for anyone doing Hispanic family history/genealogy, now the same collection is being indexed. I strongly believe that the Mexico 1930 Census paved the way for other collections. Now on FamilySearch Record Search you can search the 1895 Argentina National Census. The searchable index is linked to digital images and for the first time Argentines have a valuable collection at their fingertips. Again, all available for free!!
Items that can be found on the 1895 Argentina Census:
- Full name of all individuals in a household.
- Place of birth if born in Argentina. If an individual was born outside of Argentina, then their nationality was given (same as country of birth).
- Age, gender, and civil status of all individuals
- Religion, Occupation, whether the individual could read or write
- If the person is going to school (for children)
- If the person owns real estate
- How many children an individual had (for women) and how many years a couple had been married
