The United States Census Compendium.
John D. Stemmons, The Everton Publishers, Inc., Logan, UT, 1973.
If you are wondering what Federal and State census records are available for the whole country, this book will help. California is covered in only two pages. The information is arranged first by state and then by county. Under each county are listed the Federal and State census records up through 1880 and some locations that have them, such as libraries, genealogy societies, publishing companies, and archives. Some counties have listed directories, poll lists, and voter records. Some of the locations listed for California include the California State Library, Bancroft Library, National Archives, and the San Joaquin Genealogical Society. The bibliography in the back of the book lists source locations and addresses.
