California Census Notes

Previous to 1821 California was under the rule of Spain. There are some censuses of the California Spanish Missions from the 1700s.  See 1796-1798 California Spanish Mission Censuses at Ancestry

1821-1848 California was under the rule of Mexico.

1848 California became part of the United States.

Federal California census records begin in 1850 and are available for census years: 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

California State Census Records: California did take a state census in 1852.  The reason for this census is the 1850 Federal census missed the counties of Contra Costa, San Francisco and Santa Clara.  See 1852 State Census of California at Ancestry

1890 California Federal census records were completely destroyed in a 1921 warehouse fire.  See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census & Bridging the 1890 Census Gap.

1890 California Great Register:   This register of voters was published in many California counties.  It is now used a census substitute for the missing 1890 California census records.
