New Mexico Census Notes

New Mexico Territory was established in 1850.  Colorado and Arizona were included in New Mexico Territory at that time.  Colorado Territory was separated from New Mexico Territory  in 1861 and Arizona Territory in 1863.  These factors can come into play when you are researching census records for ancestors during this time period in NM, CO and AZ. See Arizona & New Mexico Territories Census, Late 1800s at Ancestry.

Federal New Mexico census records are available to the public for census years 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1885, 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930. See 1790-1940 US Census Records at Ancestry.

Arizona census schedules are included in the 1860 Federal Census of New Mexico as Arizona County.

The 1890 Federal New Mexico Census schedules were lost in a 1921 warehouse fire, however the 1890 Veterans and Widows schedules did survive.  See A Fire Destroyed The 1890 Census, Bridging the 1890 Census Gap & 1890 Veterans Schedules at Ancestry.

Soundex code (phonetic indexes) for New Mexico Federal census records were created by NARA and are available on microfilm for census years 1880, 1900, and 1920.

There were several Spanish and Mexican census enumerations of the population of New Mexico.  The NM Genealogical Society published a volume of these censuses for years 1790. 1823 and 1845.  Each census is arranged by village or pueblo and has a comprehensive name index with varying personal information. See 1790 Spanish Census of New Mexico at Ancestry.

 New Mexico

(Territory 1850.  Statehood 1912)

Mostly occupied by Indians and Spanish Americans prior to 1800, the rugged mountains, vast desert lands, mesquite trees, and rattle snakes forged together with a quiet beauty greeted early settlers in New Mexico.  Starting in 1821, the Santa Fe Trail between Independence, Missouri and Santa Fe, New Mexico brought loaded wagons rolling westward in the dust to this great land.
