How do you confirm a 19th Century family relationship?
This is always a tough question, and (depending on the local record keeping) requires some work to answer. I'm not sure if you have pursued this, but the best way to prove such relationships are from surviving legal documents. If there is a will (do you know where the father died?), administration of an estate (even a small one) or a land transaction such as a deed or purchase, you may find such a reference. Another source are church records, especially if you know what town or city they lived in (esp true for Catholic church records). There are also obituaries (esp in church newspapers) in that era that often contain family details. There are indices for this. Check with the LDS resources.
The later censuses do carry the exact relationship, but 1830s is a problem. Finally, if there are local archives, you may find a county history or other references that mention the family).
Are you sure the census can't provide you with some clues? Like the number of males or females of a certain age in the household. You could use this data to look for brothers and/or sisters.
What county/township are they listed in? Often relations will live nearby. If not a few households away, then maybe in neighboring townships.
You might look into a book or website that offers advice on how to get the most out of census records - even info you may not realize is useful - and where to go next when you've exhausted those leads.
Here are a couple of books that offer alternative research resources: Hidden Sources: Family History in Unlikely Places
Locating Your Roots: Discover Your Ancestors Using Land Records
Also, have you checked surname websites or message boards (like rootsweb.com's boards)for other people researching the same surnames. You might get lucky and find a 'distant cousin' with the missing piece to your puzzle. Or you mind find a volunteer who lives in the area who would be willing to help with your research.

during the 19Th century, prisons were very poor in hygiene, there were no good supplies of food, clothes, baths, book, bedding, health or exercise. the wardens quite often joi…ned in with fights instead of stopping them! people were quite often imprisoned for reasons such as poverty, crime, religion debt or even just being an orphan. if you were imprisoned for debts, your entire family would have to go with you. the conditions in prisons were slightly improved in the 1860's but no proper clothes were provided until a while afterward. hope i have helped!!! ;-)
A century is a time span of a 100 years. Since the dating of the calender after the year of the birth of Jesus Christ, we have been using the word century to denote each 1…00-year period. So from day 1 of 1 A.D. through 100 A.D. was called the first (1st) century. Counting so, the 19th century means the years from 1801 A.D. through 1900 A.D.
Yes. 1834 is in the 19th century.

1800 - 1899 or 1801 - 1900The 19th Century is a span of one hundred years, 99 of which are the years 1801 through 1899. There is considerable heated disagreement as to whether… the other year is 1800 or 1900. Technically if the first year was year 1 (as opposed to year zero) then each century should begin in the 01 year and end in the 00 year. However most people discuss centuries as going from 00 to 99, those years having the first two digits in common. Celebrations for new centuries are normally conducted on January 1 of the '01 year.
While this being a highly controversial topic. It has always come down between the late Wade Hampton and James Ezra Tindal. Exact documents were never fully insured due to the… burning that had taken place under Sherman. James Ezra Tindal fought for the Confederate army and was a Secretary Of State For the Confederate States of America, also a very wealth Democrat, his family landed in Charlestowne in 1720 and was granted 20,000 acres by the King of England, in what is now Summerton, SC .The Tindal Family still owns more than 8,000 acres in Summerton, SC and has many political ties in the state. Wade Hampton was also brought down by the Burning but brought his wealth back after the war, he left a very hefty trust fund to the two younger women.

There were all kinds of changes in the 19th century. In 1800 Britain was starting to industrialize; by 1900 it was one of the most highly industrialized countries in the… world. I'd suggest focusing on the period from about 1830 onwards. The class system had become more fluid. For example, there were enterprising people who had started with very little capital and become very rich ... The main classes were: * The aristocracy, which still clung to its privileges, and generally expected to be treated with respect by the middle classes. * The new middle classes, who had risen to wealth and prominence in the early stages of the industrial revolution, were under-represented in Parliament (until after 1832) and had little sympathy for the land-owning aristocracy. * The traditional middle classses - Anglican clergymen, lawyers, etc. * The skilled working class, which enjoyed a reasonable standard of living from about 1850. * The unskilled working class - regarded by those above them as mysterious, dangerous, godless and subversive ... Obviously, this is a very simplified thumbnail sketch.
In the 19th century, women and men were not equal. The woman had to do the households, laundry etc. while the man was working 6 days a week. Nowadays, it's very normal that wo…men go to university. Earlier, the women had no choice, they were not supposed to go to university. The were there for creating a family and being a house wife. The number of children was different, in this time a family have approximately 2 children while in the 19th century it was normal to have 8 children. Also religion, urbanization, infrastructure and the media have to do with it. Greetzzzzzzz

In respect to Germany in the World War II era and the 20th centurymore largely, the effects of the 19th century were profound. Justone example out of many can demonstrate the …point: the unificationof Germany in the late 19th century, as part of the wave ofnationalism that was sweeping Europe at that time, put it in aposition to compete viably with other European nations for thefirst time in many generations.
