Substitutes for the Lost 1890 U.S. Federal Census


This is the first comprehensive guide to substitutes for the lost 1890 U.S. Federal Census ever compiled. Written by researcher and author William Dollarhide, this volume pulls together a listing of mostly online and quickly accessible sources to overcome the hurdle of the "gap" between the 1880 and 1900 U.S. Federal Censuses.

All 1,203 database source titles listed in this book were extracted from the series of state books, Censuses and Substitute Name Lists (52 books-Alabama to Wyoming, plus District of Columbia and US Territories, 2017-2018). The name lists identified are in the form of databases mostly found on the Internet. This volume adds the number of records covering the years 1885-1895 into the description of each database whenever possible, making the guide invaluable to the researcher. Any substitute name lists not digitized yet are noted with a link a reference to a state book wherein more information is available.
