Anatomy of the Census Page
Not every piece of information is obvious to the casual observer, so to make sure that you extract every useful piece of information from the census page.

Monumental Inscriptions (the writing on gravestones) can tell you alot about an ancestor, but you'll probably find more information in a burial register or death record.
