Locating Census Enumeration Districts

My paternal grandparents were last listed in the 1920 census in an area called Coldwater in Chattooga County, Georgia. Coldwater is not a town but an enumeration district for the census. These districts often changed from census to census so how do you keep up?

Lisa Louise Cooke has the answer. Check out her How to Find Enumeration District Maps at Genealogy Gems.


Currently I'm researching my Barrett and Barker families in Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi and Florida. Other surnames in my family tree include Link, Gervais, Blake, Henry, Levy and Turnbull (yes, that Turnbull).

We'd like to hear from you.
