A few weeks back, I found myself trying to locate SCHMIDT in the Town of Hartland -- I looked from 1860 - 1930 and THOUGHT this would be an easy one -- no misspellings on Schmidt, right?  Wrong -- I looked for an entire evening and finally tracked them through all the censuses - SCHMIDT, SCHMITH, SMITH, etc.  I sure wish the census takers could see us now, looking over every pen stroke to see if it was an "a" or a sloppy "o"... some are very neat but sometimes I think this might have very well been their first grasp at penmanship!  Needless to say, these records are a great source of information! 

The 1930 Federal Census Index here is just that, an index.  The actual census has so much more information, but this should at least help you locate your family in the census, whether you view it on microfilm or online.   (BTW, that's why Hartland Twp. is completed first -- the rest will eventually follow -- I promise!) 


A little on the Village of Cecil -- this was like "old home week" for me... My Grandparents Laedtke were on sheet #1!  OK, I grew up in the country, and my grandparents lived in Cecil, near the old Town Hall and the Catholic Church -- hence they had a sidewalk -- a genuine sidewalk!  Now, this was big-time for a country kid and playing "jacks" on the sidewalk ruled as did hopscotch and skipping rope!!  I remember walking up to Schmidt's Country store and a nickel got you a BAG of candy and a handshake!... so this page of the census was like taking a walk down "Memory Lane" for me!!!
