The NCGenWeb Archives has an alphabitized list to assist those looking for surnames only. This list
is in the order the family names appeared on the Census. It can help
determine neighbors and associated families.
Submitted by Ralph Taylor
Ralph added two fields which are
not in the originaldocument:
1. Page, column & line
numbers, in the form "2C-004" (representing the 4th
enumeration in the 3rd column of
page 2.). This field uniquely identifies
each enumeration in the event of
duplicate names. As you know, the 1790
census used four columns of
listings per page & Dobbs begins in the 3rd
column, "C"; the 1st 2
columns represent the end of Pitt County.
2. Transcriber/Interpreter Notes:
Two instances were found where the
enumerator's tally may have been
in error; rather than correct them, I noted
"Error?" in this field.
The field is also useful for identifying the
locations of families where
identifiable and other information.
