Continuing our review for each of William Dollarhide’s name lists books, we detail the contents of Delaware Name Lists 1609-1992, with a selection of National Name Lists, 1600s – Present. Currently, there are nine new names lists books, and we are providing details on each.

Here are some interesting notes taken from the databases descriptions in the book:

- Colonial censuses exist for 1644 and 1647 taken for New Sweden, and there are censuses taken by the British beginning in 1671. Delaware has never taken a state sponsored census.

- City Directories date back to the 1850s
