Maryland Census Notes

A Colonial census was taken in Maryland in 1776. See 1776 Maryland Colonial Census at Ancestry.

1776 & 1778 Special censuses of Maryland.  Maryland was enumerated by the Federal government in 1776 and 1778. See Census Search at the Maryland State Archives.

Soundex code (phonetic indexes) for Federal Maryland census records are available on microfilm for the following census years: 1880, 1900 and 1920.

Maryland Federal census records are available to the public for census years: 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930.  Note: The following Federal census schedules are missing for Maryland: 1790 Allegany, Calvert and Somerset Counties & 1800 Baltimore County (outside of the city). See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

1890 Maryland Federal Census schedules were lost in a 1921 warehouse fire, however the 1890 Veterans and Widows census survived and may be of help as a census substitute. See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census, Bridging the 1890 Census Gap and See 1890 Veterans Schedules at Ancestry.
