Louisiana  Census Notes

Louisiana is divided into parishes rather than the counties most of us are familiar with.

The Census Tables for the French Colony of Louisiana from 1699 Through 1732 are the earliest available for the state of Louisiana.  This collection of 28 censuses along with many other early Louisiana genealogy databases can be accessed by subscription. See 1600s-1800s Louisiana Settlers

Federal Louisiana census records are available to the public for census years: 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

Soundex code Indexes for Federal Louisiana census records are available on microfilm for the following census years: 1880,  1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930.

Inaccurate information and facts about the 1860 Louisiana census: See A situation concerning the 1860 census of East Feliciana Parish, La.

1890 Louisiana Federal Census Records were destroyed in a 1921 warehouse fire, however, the schedules for Veterans and Widows did survive and proves to be a helpful census substitute for the 1890 census year. See 1791-1890 Louisiana Census Records at Ancestry which includes this census and many other helpful Louisiana census records.
