From the product description:
Census records are perhaps the first public record most genealogists use beyond vital records. Federal and state census records can provide valuable information on our ancestors as they record a variety of personal information including: head of household, address, number of children living, place of birth of the individual, place of birth of the parents, occupation, value of real and personal property, educational level, names of neighbors, and more. Beginning in 1790, the United States federal government began enumerating the population every ten years. By analyzing the information provided on census schedules we can learn more about our ancestors’ daily lives. From occupational information to marital status, census records provide a variety of information to help move our research ahead. The Using U.S. Census Records Legacy QuickGuide™ contains useful information to get you started on learning more these important records. This handy 4-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.

From the product description:
The Society of Friends, or Quakers, has been active in the United States since 1655 when missionaries first arrived. Known for their passive stance against war, an involvement in social reform initiatives, and as a faith group with a simple and plain appearance, the Quakers have been part of American history since before the formation of our country. However, early on there were anti-Quaker laws in many colonies, specifically in what we now call the New England area. The colony of Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn as a Quaker community in 1681, becoming a safe-haven for many Quaker families. The meeting locations may have consolidated or changed over the years, but the Quaker faith is still growing.
The Quaker Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains useful information including a review of Quaker practices which impacted record keeping as well as resources for researching your Quaker ancestors. Utilize this handy 4-page PDF guide on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
