Don’t forget when searching the census that several “schedules” exist for different time periods.  If available, use them together.  For instance, if you find someone on a mortality schedule, you will probably be able to find them on the main census.  Mortality listings also point to other non-census places that may have information such as death records, obituaries and funeral home records.
