Illinois Census Notes

Between 1680-1763, Illinois was controlled by the French.

Between 1763-1783, control of Illinois was in the hands of Great Britain.

Between 1800 and 1809, Illinois was included in Indiana Territory.

On 3 March, 1809, Illinois Territory was created.

Federal Illinois census records begin in 1820 and census enumerations were taken every ten years thereafter. Census years available to the public are: 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

Soundex code indexes for Federal Illinois census records are available on microfilm for census years: 1880, 1900, 1910, and 1920.

1890 Federal census schedules (including the Veterans and Widows census) were completely destroyed by a 1921 warehouse fire with the exception of a small fragment of McDonough County ED 174. See 1890 Federal Census Fragments at Ancestry.

Illinois state census records were enumerated in 1810, 1820, 1830, 1835, 1840, 1845, 1855 & 1865. See 1825-1865 State Census Records Search at Ancestry. Also See IL State Census for more information about the Illinois State Census.
