The US Constitution requires that a federal census be conducted every ten years; the federal census has been conducted since 1790. The records from 1790-1920 are made publicly available by the US National Archives; later census records are inaccessible for privacy reasons. (In addition to the federal censuses, Maine also conducted its own special census in 1837.)

The USGenWeb Census Project is undertaking the task of transcribing the census data from every available Federal census and making it available on the web. There are also some individuals who have transcribed parts of censuses for their own use, and generously shared it with us.

Listed here are sites where you can find either scanned images of the actual census records or transcripts of the records. Note: these links are presented as is until they can be verified. Please report any broken links to
