Connecticut Census Records
Connecticut Census Notes
Colonial Connecticut Census Records include:
Grain Inventory for Hartford, Wethersfield and Windsor. It lists the head of household, number of family members and how many bushels of grain each family owned.
The 1670 Connecticut census is a reconstructed census substitute. It was created by using tax, land, church, freeman and probate records for years 1667-1673. It lists approximately 2300 individuals.
Other early Connecticut census records include 1756, 1762, 1774 and 1776. These statistical censuses really don't offer much help to genealogy researchers.
Connecticut state census records are lacking. There are a few... 1779, 1782, 1798 direct tax documents and an 1821 school census for Glastonbury but most of these censuses will not be very helpful to those doing genealogical research. See: Research Guide to Census Records at the Connecticut State Library & Special Censuses Info.
The Connecticut Military Census Records of 1917 can be a useful tool in genealogy research for this time period. See: 1917 Connecticut Military Census.
Federal Connecticut census records include census years: 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 & 1930. These are all available to the public. See 1790-1940 Census Collection at Ancestry.
