      The US Federal Census were taken every 10 years since 1790. The 1890
      Census was lost in a fire circa 1920 before the sheets were filmed.
      Parts of a few states remained. There was a separate schedule for
      Veterans that survived.

      You can find people in the 1870 Census ; just enter their names, either
      exact or not Residence 1870-1870 and they should show up. did you find
      them in 1850 and 1880?

      Tell us the name/s of the people you are looking for and the state.
