Nebraska Census Notes

Nebraska Territorial Census Records - Territorial censuses were taken for the years 1854, 1855, 1856 and 1860 in Nebraska. See 1854-1870 Nebraska Census at Ancestry.

Federal Nebraska Census Records are available for the following years: 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

Soundex code (phonetic indexes) for Nebraska Federal census records are available to the public for the census years: 1880, 1900, and 1920.

The 1885 Special Federal Agricultural Census is an excellent and little used resource.  I have copies of some of these.  They tell what kind of livestock, how many, if they sold butter, eggs, etc...provides a very interesting look into your family history. See 1885 Special Nebraska State Census at Ancestry.

1890 Nebraska Federal Census Records were destroyed in a 1921 warehouse fire, however the 1890 Nebraska Veterans and Widows schedules did survive the fire and are often used as a census substitute. See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census & Bridging the 1890 Census Gap.

Nebraska State Census Records were enumerated every year between 1869 and 1885.  Only a small number of those schedules have been found and in fact, some may still be buried in storage rooms of old courthouses. See: Nebraska Records & 1860-1885 Nebraska State Census Collection at Ancestry.
