    About Census Online
    Since its founding, this site has grown considerably from being a single
    transcription and list of 25 links.  After all these years, we continue to serve
    as the internet's primary starting point for locating online census records
    1850 Greene Co., TN Census
    Compiled 1996-1997 by a 19-year old, it is the transcription that started it all!
    This 402-page census transcription, one of only a handful of online census
    records available in 1997, was the original nucleus of the Census Online
    project. Over time, the scope of Census Online has shifted from the narrow
    focus of providing specific census transcriptions to a broader approach of
    offering a comprehensive guide to online census research.
