At the time that this census was taken, the only township in the county was known as 'Grantsburg'.  It covered all of what is now Burnett and Washburn counties.  To save on width space, I have given each heading (or question) a letter of the alphabet.   You will find an explanation of each letter or question at the top of each page within this census transcription.  Also, to aid you in your research, an index of names has been included along the pages as they appear on in the Burnett Co. Census.  This census contains 20 pages, as attested heretofore by the compiler:

"I hereby certify that the foregoing returns on Schedule No one for subdivision No contains twenty pages and were well and truly made according to the tenor of my oath of office.
Ole A Thoreson
Assistant Marshal"
