    • Description: Mecklenburg-Schwerin was a duchy formed in 1701 through a division of the Duchy of Mecklenburg. In 1815, it became a grand duchy. The area is now part of the northeastern German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. By a decree dated June 18th, 1819, the first general census of the population of the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin was conducted in August of the same year. The first census of this region to have survived extensively, it was conducted by the German Confederation in order to accurately calculate the military quotas of its individual territories. The 1819 census included everyone in Mecklenburg-Schwerin “who was living on the day of the census, as young or as old as they may be, of every gender, religion, occupation, or status.” Unlike later censuses, the 1819 census provides each person’s place of birth, land ownership information, and the length of residence.
