Dating Negatives

Does anyone know of a good site for help with dating negatives by edge codes?
I am scanning family photos going back to about 1900. I have the negatives and I know I should have all the info I need right there to date them without even looking at the image. I found a couple sites on Kodak edge codes but I am not finding the markings from my negatives. I'm pulling my hair out from googling. I don't want to get into cloths and sluething dates (I know the approximate time) I'm looking for charts and simple explanations of how to tell the year a film was made.
Thank you for your help.
