Recencement General du Pais des Illinois, 1752

The census covers Kaskaskia, Fort de Chartres, Cahokia, St. Philippe, Ste. Genevieve, and Prairie du Rocher. The artifact can be used to determine the number of individuals who lived in each of the identified geographical areas. It can also be used to give context about the area where the individuals lived including the type of structures and agriculture present. The transcription of the census found in the Illinois State Genealogical Society Quarterly provides names that can be used to identify families who lived in the area.
