Preece Family History and One Name Study

The website dedicated to the research of Preece individuals and families worldwide


1910 US census entries

This page contains 1910 US Census entries where the household has one or more persons born in England, Wales or Scotland. If it can be identified, the closest UK census entry held prior to departure is shown to the right of the entry, together with any passenger information which may be known. Marriage details will be added where appropriate, whether in the UK or US. The number of links will of course increase as more are located/held.

SEARCHERS WARNING! - The US census returns contain quite a number of entries which are shown as Pierce, and at present they have been excluded from these pages. However, as further US records are held it may become clear that they are actually Preece records 'misspelt', and so will be added here later with a suitable note.
