Sourcing Census Images

I've been working on sourcing my census images that I had downloaded from Godfrey Library back when they allowed access to Heritage Quest. I have accumulated quite a few of them in the short time I was a Godfrey scholar, and I figured now was the time to get started added the information to my FTM file.

Right now I'm into the Chew family branches that went to Charlevoix Co., MI, particularly the Donovan Chew family. Interesting stuff in the 1920 census, as far as details about whether or not someone owns their home or if it is mortgaged.

It will be a slow going to get all of this information sourced, but already I've discovered new distant cousins and family relationships.
