Last Updated: 5 November 2015

 

Colonial, Territorial and State Censuses are of vital importance to genealogists, as they were often taken on non-Federal Decennial census years, taken prior to statehood, or between the Federal Censuses. Thirty-seven states (or what became states) took them. Tax records are also of extreme value, again, being taken between Federal Censuses, as well as on the census years. They are probably the best census substitutes in existence.

The following listing, complete with links, descriptions, and numbers of records & images is made up of state and school censuses, as well as tax lists currently found at FamilySearch.org. I will continue to update this posting as new data goes up.

Deadwood, South Dakota’s Historic Documents

The following excerpts are from an article in the November 2, 2009 edition of the Rapid City Journal.

City of Deadwood Archives

The archives at Deadwood’s City Hall hold shelves filled with voting records, county inventory and appraisal ledgers, probate ledgers and other circuit court documents dating from the late 1800s to the 1960s.

Many of those documents nearly ended up in the landfill. Mark Wolfe, who was hired in 1990 as Deadwood’s first historic preservation officer, literally pulled some of the county ledger books out of a Dumpster at the county courthouse, then stored them in the basement of David Larson and Mary Dunne’s business until there was a place for them at City Hall.

Other collections soon will be available, as well.

The Homestake Adams Research & Cultural Center, which will house the Homestake Mining Co. collection and Adams House and Museum collections, is slated to open next summer. The Days of ’76 Museum, projected to open in 2011, will focus on rodeo and cowboy culture.

Eventually, searchable databases for the various archives will be tied together online, officials said.

Adoptees Again Push For Rights in South Dakota

Adoptees in South Dakota are once again pushing to get a bill passed allowing them access to their birth records. They almost accomplished it in 2009, but fell short. Following is an excerpt for a lengthy and interesting AP article in the October 4, 2009 Rapid City Journal.

Even though Oaks, who was adopted as an infant, already had met her birth mother — had, in fact, helped plan the woman’s funeral — it bothers her that she can’t access her original birth records, only an amended certificate.

“The girl behind the counter at the Minnehaha County Courthouse knows more about me than I know,” she says.

That desire to see what they call “the first legal paper that is mine” is why Twite, Oaks and other South Dakota residents seek to change state law.

Rather than have to go before a judge to obtain their birth records, a bill they’re pushing would allow adoptees 18 and older to obtain the documents from the state Department of Health.

A similar bill struggled but eventually passed both chambers in the 2009 Legislature.

It was amended to allow a birth parent to state a preference for contact by an adopted person with the state Department of Social Services maintaining the registry.

DSS originally had approved the bill but withdrew its support after the amendment passed.

The bill failed to move out of conference committee when three of the six legislators would not support it.

But state residents who belong to South Dakota Support and Education for Adoption Legislation are undeterred.

State Census Records Found at FamilySearch Labs

The shear numbers of records found at the FamilySearch labs website are mind boggling. Within the digitized records now found posted 1865 Brighton, Monroe Co, NY Census at the site are quite a number of State Census records.

Records for Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Wisconsin are now found there.

These records are not all indexed, but even those can be browsed by location. A few of the databases are not imaged, but they are searchable.

The state census may include many images that are not population schedules including mortality and agricultural schedules. In some cases the images are in separate databases; in others they may be found at the end of the population schedules.

The following State Censuses are now found at the FamilySearch Labs site:

censussubs-1-60pw Thirty-seven states have Colonial, Territorial, and State Censuses.

Use these census records to fill in your family data for the years between the Federal decennial censuses.

I recommend the following four books for those who would like to add to their family records:
