School Lists & Censuses
The gap created by the loss of the 1890 census leaves a 20 year span of time that the genealogical researcher needs to fill with other records. School lists and censuses from the 1890's are helpful in pinpointing where families with children from the ages of 5 through 20 lived.  The school census was generally carried out yearly.
School attendance lists are not as accurate because school attendance, while encouraged, was not required.  Children were often needed at home.   Students stayed in a particular grade until they passed the state examinations for that grade.
