Digitally enhanced PDF images of the original special census schedules. These 1890 records may be of immense value to those researching Union Veterans or their surviving spouses. A few "Rebel" soldiers were included in rare instances. These census schedules may include the name of the Union Veteran soldier, sailor or marine, his widow if he is deceased, his rank, the name of regiment or vessel in which he served, date of enlistment, date of discharge, post office address (usually a town name), disability incurred, and remarks. Also usually included are Supervisor and Enumerator Districts, township and county of residence as enumerated in June of 1890.

The original 1890 Census Population Schedules were destroyed during a fire in the Department of Commerce Building in Washington, DC in 1921. This leaves a 20-year gap from 1880 to 1900 in census resources for genealogists tracing their families through that time period. These special census schedules are almost all that remain of enumeration for that year.

Of course, these census images have the same advantages and problems as other census records, including possibly poor original quality, difficult handwriting, enumerators who often could not spell, etc. But the sum of the information included is probably not available from any other source. Number of listings varies per county. Blank pages were not deleted, the file is the same as the corresponding microfilm roll.

We added an index to counties to help you navigate. You need at least Adobe 5 Reader for this CD.
