Note: All transcriptions for The USGenWeb Census Project must be made from
microfilm, photocopies of microfilm, or scanned images of the actual census page images.

Many state & local archives, libraries, & genealogical or historical societies;
the Family History Centers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons); and other institutions have purchased all or some of the census microfilms and make them available to the public.

  • Family History Centers - Latter Day Saints

  • National Archives (NARA)
    The complete set of all existing census schedules is housed in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Washington, D.C. Without charge, the public also can research copies of census schedules in the Microfilm Research Room in the National Archives Building, which is on Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, between Seventh and Ninth Streets in Washington, DC. Anyone can rent census microfilms from The National Archives Census Microfilm Rental Program, P.O. Box 30, Annapolis Junction, Maryland 20701-0030. You can order several reels at a time, and keep them a month before returning. The rate is quite reasonable. You join the program, for which there is a one-time fee, and they will send you the kit - booklets for the various census nation-wide up to and including 1920 and also Rev. War veterans records.
