State, territorial, and colonial censuses[edit | edit source]

Indiana took censuses in different years than the federal censuses. These censuses may have different data compared to federal censuses. Check these censuses for more information on a family.

  • According to Lainhart, Indiana county assessors were supposed to take a state census every six years starting in 1853. She also quotes Ancestry's Red Book saying enumerations were made at various intervals starting in 1820. Most of these incomplete originals are apparently at county archives. The Indiana State Library at Indianapolis has a few for 1931, 1919, 1913, 1901, 1889, 1883, 1877, 1871, and 1857. Many are also published in periodicals.

Why use a census?[edit | edit source]

A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.
