      If you go to archive.org they have the 1870 census however it is only images
      and no transcriptions. Just search for 1870 census and you will get a list.
      Not as user friendly but you can't argue with free. You can even download
      them. Depending on where you are looking the 1870 census can be problematic.
      I have heard from several people that entire sections of communities were
      not enumerated and I know this to be a fact in Washington County VA. This
      has stymied my research many times. I have an Ancestry subscription and am
      happy to do look ups.

      Subject: [Genealogy Research Club] Census Question

      I have a question regarding the census. I know there is no 1890 census, but
      what about an 1870 census. I need info for someone from 1870 and didn't see
      one in FS.

      Also, is there a place where I can find the year and then search the census
      year individually. As in this case I found all that were available for
      finding except for 1870.

      I don't have a subscription to Ancestry and that is actually my favorite
      place for census searches, or I should say it use to be. I use to like the
      FS site for census too.

      I'm going to go back and search again but I was wondering about these
