Nevada Census Notes

Nevada became a possession of the United States in 1848 after the Mexican War. Between 1850 and 1861, it was included in Utah Territory  before becoming Nevada Territory.

Nevada Territorial Census Records are available for 1861-1862 but is incomplete for all areas.

In 1860 Federal Census Records, future Nevada residents were recorded in Utah.  Future Elko County residents are recorded in St. Marys County, UT.  Future Douglas, Lyon, Ormsby and Story Counties are recorded in Carson County, Utah.

Nevada State Census Records exist for the year 1875 and although the data included in those census schedules is not as thorough as the Federal census, it can help to bridge the gap between 1870 and 1880 Nevada Federal census records. See 1875 Nevada State Census at Ancestry.

Federal Nevada Census Records are available to the public for census years 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

1890 Nevada Federal Census Records were completely destroyed in an unfortunate 1921 warehouse fire. See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census, Bridging the 1890 Census Gap.

The Nevada State Historic Preservation Office has put the Nevada Federal census data online for 1860-1920.  Keep in mind, this is the "DATA ONLY" from these censuses, not the 1860-1930 Nevada Census Images at Ancestry which are indexed and can be viewed online, then printed out for addition to your genealogy records and documentation.  The Ancestry Nevada Census Records also include census images and an index for the year 1930 which has not yet been digitized by the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office.  Both sources are invaluable tools for Nevada census research.
