Out-of-State Census Guide

The Kansas Historical Society has selected federal censuses for other states in the collections. These materials are available to patrons in the research room of the Center for Historical Research. Some are on microfilm, others are in book form, and a few indexes are on CD-ROM. We have both the census and its index unless otherwise indicated. These items are not available through interlibrary loan. Please see our reference correspondence policy for the reference assistance we can provide. We do not make copies from printed census.
