I’m continuing my search for census enumerator’s instructions. If you use the census, you really need to be familiar with these documents as well, as they tell you when and how the census was recorded. These can provide you useful hints, such as before what date an ancestor died. That “end point” can prove crucial when you’re constructing a tree.
Looking for the enumerator’s instructions for the 1900 Luxembourg census? You won’t find them in Luxembourg. That year’s enumerator’s instructions were set by the federated council of the German Empire: the enumeration date was set for 1 December. You can read what decision was made by the government of Luxembourg here.
