Germany, Mecklenburg- Schwerin Census Records at FamilySearch

As the number of collection available at the Historical Records Collections of www.familysearch.org continues to grow, it's easy to overlook some of the smaller databases. Some of these are very important for those looking for their Jewish ancestors.
One such collection are the census records for Germany, Mecklenburg - Schwerin. Familysearch now has availble parts of three censuses, 1867, 1890 and 1900. 1890 and 1900 are searchable by name at this point, however 1867 is not.
The 1900 census has over 760,000 images as of this time. The collection comes with a description of the record (shown below) that helps explain the record set.

In this case I did a search for Salomon Berg, who I knew should be included. Indeed he was, and the image below shows the summary of his entry.


Included with the record above is the original image the information was taken from. By clicking on the view image tab at the left of the image, the original record becomes available. The original census form for Salomon Berg is shown below.

The collections are constantly being updated and it is very worthwhile to continue checking back for new available records.
