Data are portrayed as follows, to facilitate (simply by looking down the page) searching across the decades for families within a given geographical area.  Thus, listings are organized by State, County, and Decade, then alphabetically for each County, by City or Town, and finally by Chamberlain names within each City or Town.  Entries for 1870 typically list data in this order: Name, LN#, Page, Residence#/Family#, Date, Gender (only if not obvious), Age, Occupation, State of Birth.  LN numbers refer to the  “Lineal Number” identification system used by David Conrad Chamberlin, Sr., in his 5000+ formally prepared Chamberlain Family Group Records, now made available elsewhere through the Society’s website.
