  • The Census is a tool that was designed by the Constitution to be used to count population every 10 years. But also now as a way to designate tax spending and also our representation in Congress.

    I am from Minnesota and in 1870 the past census records were destroyed in a fire. So the loss is immeasureable. An excellent place to find old geneology records is in Salt Lake City. The Mormons were good about keeping records and feeling like the past was worth remembering. I think the current is worth remembering and I too, will be counted.
