Census records are extremely valuable as there are no other records, apart from a diary of a family member (which tend to be a rarity), where you can find family groups ... the parents and siblings of your ancestors and possibly other relatives. It's common enough to come across entries in the census where a niece / nephew stayed with an aunt / uncle or grandchildren stayed with grandparents. There are so many useful links to your family that census records can reveal which assist in establishing your relations and help with the creation of your family tree.
