Census Substitutes & State Census Records, Volume 2 – Central States: Substitute Name Lists for all 50 States and State Censuses for 38 States, Second Edition; by William Dollarhide; 2016; about 278 pages; 8½ x 11; ISBN 9781628590838; Item FR0421.
This 2nd volume covers 16 central states of The Old Northwest (IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, & WI); The Central Plains IA, KS, MO, NE, ND, & SD); and the more Central Southern states of (TX, OK, LA, & AR).
In this Second Edition, William Dollarhide identifies Census Substitutes, as well as State Census Records for the Western portion of the United States of America. The substitutes are those name lists derived from tax lists, directories, military lists, land ownership maps, voter registrations, and other compilations of names of residents for an entire state, one or more counties of a state or one or more towns in a county. Thirty-eight states conducted colonial, territorial, or state censuses that are extant and available for research today. Often taken between Federal Decennial Census years, these records may contain unique information, and may even shed light on the lives of your ancestors that might have been on-the-move.
The Second Edition includes numerous online sources that have been posted on the Internet since the First Edition was published in 2008. This reflects the ongoing efforts of both public and private companies to digitize relevant records. Although the series is by region, and then by state, there have been numerous nationwide census and census substitute sources that have been developed in the last decade, with most posted online. For this reason, we have included a Nationwide Censuses & Substitutes chapter within this book. This volume is the second of three in a series, covering the Eastern, Central, and Western states. The First Edition was printed in two volumes (Eastern & Western), while the Second Edition is now in three.
