This project was started by the GAY surname mailing list and has been made possible by all the
members on this wonderful genealogy resource list. This page is created to include GAY census
records from the first census taken in 1790 to 1920. Our Constitution requires that a census be
taken every ten years and only records that are 70 years and older are released for public viewing.
If you have any questions concerning these records or would like to contribute, contact
