Hardwick Vital Statistics

   1790 Census     1800 Census     1810 Census     1820 Census

Census reporting ends with the 1820 census. There were over 50 separate items of data gathered in the 1830 census. That fact and that names are not in alphabetical order make it impractical to report later years.

04-03-2006    Homeland Security has indicated that to prevent identity theft, vital record information younger than 70 years should not be accessible to the public. For this reason, I have removed the links to search vital record information.
