Delaware Census Notes

Federal Delaware census records are available to the public for census years: 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 & 1930. See US Census Records at Ancestry

1790 Federal Delaware census records are said to have been destroyed in the War of 1812.  Early tax lists of Delaware can be used as a census substitute to cover the 1790 gap in some cases.

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

When researching Delaware, you will often see the word Hundred.  This is simply a division within the county.

Delaware was originally part of the Pennsylvania Colony.  Places which are currently located in Delaware, may have been in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Maryland in earlier times.

Delaware state census records are scarce.  In fact, the only known state census year is 1782 and it is not complete.
