The Forgotten Federal Census of 1885
- The Forgotten Federal Census of 1885
For those who may be struggling in their pre-1903 research,
specifically regarding some of our ancestors who may have arrived in
the earliest Czech-Slovak immigration waves, I came across a story of
a little-known off-year US federal census. I do not believe it has
been filmed by the FHL, so you may have to go to the US National
Archives to access it.
