The 1690 Census Project
Of course, there was no United States Census in 1690. There was no United States either. This project seeks to compile the household information that might have have been collected in an imaginary 1690 census, a century before the first official U.S. Census. It consists of people who were born too early for the 1790 Census, combining them in a single GEDCOM or XML database. Congregational Church, Danvers, MA, 1701

The 1690 Census Project targets anyone living in 1690 (more or less) in any place that is now the United States of America: New England, New Amsterdam, New Sweden, New Spain, Iroquois Nation, and so on.

To contribute to the 1690 Census Project, send your GEDCOM file (preferably zipped) containing 17th or early 18th century American residents. Individuals born between 1600 and 1800 will be included automatically. If you need a home on the Internet for the rest of your family tree, may we suggest Rootweb's free WorldConnect Project?
