Census Schedules

Schedule data represent the individual responses to  questions asked in the Census. Under U.S. privacy laws, seventy-two years must elapse before census data on individual persons can be released, and thirty years before census data on individual businesses can be released.  Schedule data is most important in micro-level historical research and in genealogical research.

HeritageQuest offers searchable images of U.S. federal census schedules from 1790-1930 along with digitized books containing family and local histories from around the country.
