15430RE: [Genealogy Research Club] Census Question
- Aug 22, 2012Crystal,
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
