1870 US Census on Family Search
- Dakota Territory
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
I'll have to give it a try on some of my brick walls. Unfortunately two of them were probably in Missouri in 1870, so I won't get too creative on searching for them until Missouri is added to the list of searchable states.

Searching 1870 Census
The second article centers on an analysis of entries located while trying to search for Johann Ufkes (born 1838 Ostfriesland, Germany) in the 1870 census and provides some ways to analyze entries.
Unfortunately I have not found either person (Johann Ufkes or Ira Sargent) I was looking for in 1870. But the search continues.

Women's Rights Advocate Elizabeth Cady Stanton-1870
Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the leaders of the women's rights movement is listed as "keeping house" in 1870 as shown in the image in this post.
The family was living in Hackensack, New Jersey and their household included four servants.
You can search for your relative in the 1870 census, but chances are if your female relative was "keeping house" she didn't have four servants to help. Those who don't have a subscription can read our free-trial suggestions here.
