Slave Schedules, 1850-1860

Slaves were counted separately on the 1850 and 1860 federal censuses. In most cases, individual slaves were not named and can be distinguished only by age, sex, and color. The names of slave owners are listed on the schedules. Microfilmed copies of slave schedules are available to patrons in the research room of the Center for Historical Research. These materials are not available through interlibrary loan. Please see our reference services policy for the reference assistance we are able to provide. KSHS slave schedule holdings include:
