M*CH*MORE One Name Study
NORTH AMERICAN CENSUSES
North American population surveys consist of censuses, directories and voter's lists. Note that entries for MUCHMORE, MUCHEMORE and similar variants have been excluded where it is clear that they belong to people being researched by the Muchmore Family Association.
Censuses of Canada have taken place every 10 years since 1851, apart from some earlier ones that only involved specific provinces. MI*CH*MOREs have been found in all these censuses as well as in 1906 and 1916 censuses limited to Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The data have sourced from the Ancestry and Automated Genealogy web sites. To access these data, click here.
Newfoundland did not join Canada until 1949. Census dates before that were rather irregular: 1836, 1845, 1857, 1869, 1884, 1901, 1911, 1921, 1935 and 1945. Other records suggest there were MITCHELMOREs resident in Newfoundland as early as 1845, but so far only data from the 1921, 1935 and 1945 censuses have been retrieved. The data came from the Newfoundland's Grand Banks and Newfoundland and Labrador GenWeb web sites. Click here to search these data.
United States censuses
Federal United States censuses have taken place every 10 years since 1790, but those taken before 1850 only named the head of household. In addition, several states have taken state censuses between these dates. As well as the Federal censuses, M*CH*MOREs have been found in the Nebraska census of 1885, the Minnesota census of 1895 and the New York censuses of 1915 and 1925. The data were taken from Ancestry and WorldVitalRecords. To access these data, click here.
