School Census

Mr. Paul Walker has graciously shared with the McComb Public Library - a collection of scanned images for Pike County's Enumeration of Educable Children
for the following years: 

1890, 1896

1900, 1908, 1912, 1912A, 1916, 1916A
  1920, 1923, 1923A, 1925, 1925A, 1927, 1929

1931, 1933, 1935, 1937, 1939

1941, 1943, 1945, 1947, 1949
  1951, 1953, 1955, 1957, 1959

1961, 1963, 1965
These images include a parent's name and the school-aged children's names and ages.

This is a wonderful resource for us to have because the library only has the 1890 in book format. The 1890 and 1896 are great because it helps fill the gap caused by the loss of most of the federal 1890 census. Also, if your ancestor seems to be missing from the federal census, you might find him/her in this resource.
