The 1970-2020 Census Predictor for Christine Jane UNDERWOOD


In my next-to-last post, I introduced my invention, The Census Predictor. I wanted to show an example of how I use it in practice.

Year
State
County
City
Address
Who Was Living There? + Notes
2020
MO
Jackson
Kansas City
Private—obviously I leave the actual address in my files for future researchers.
Christy and her dog and cat: I have no plans to move so this will most likely be our home. Best laid plans?
2010
MO
Jackson
Kansas City
12710 Baltimore Court
Christy was a live-in caregiver for her mom, Corinne, at her mother’s home.
2000
MO
Jackson
Kansas City
501 West 11th Street
Christy and a different dog: We lived in three different units in this apartment building. I don’t remember which one we were in when I filled out the census form.
1990
MO
Jackson
Kansas City
3414 East 105th Terrace
Christy lived with her parents, Steve and Corinne, while she went back to college at UMKC.
1980
MO
Jackson
Kansas City
3414 East 105th Terrace
Christy, Steve, and Corinne; her brother Doug may have lived there also.
1970
MO
Jackson
Kansas City

Christy and most of her family: Steve, Corinne, Greg and Doug. Her brother Pat may have been serving his country in Vietnam already. Her sister, Kathy, may have been in Columbia, Missouri, attending Mizzou.

Remember, don’t forget to include a Custom Fact in your genealogy software program and on your family tree on Ancestry.com. They are very useful when creating a framework for your relatives’ lives.

  1. I have been doing something similar with my family members - brilliant idea and a great way to leave breadcrumbs for those who follow after us and do the family history research. Thanks for sharing your idea and giving it such a terrific name!
