Census Records

Slave Schedules

The slave schedules do NOT include the names of the slaves. They list the name of the slave owner and give details on the number of slaves owned by age and sex.

Special Census

There is a surviving special census from 1890 of Union veterans. In a few places the enumerator also listed Confederate veterans.

Ancestry Library Edition has the following collections:
