CENSUS RECORDS

HALSEY -- Nebraska State Census, 1885

Source: Ancestry.com

~~~~~~~

Description
The Nebraska state census for 1885 holds special significance because the 1890 U.S. Federal Census was damaged and destroyed by fire in 1921. Less than 1 percent of the original 1890 schedules are available for research today. Thus, state censuses for this time period often contain information that would have otherwise been forever destroyed.
State censuses were often taken in years between the federal censuses. In some places, local censuses were designed to collect specific data, such as the financial strengths and needs of communities; tallies of school-age children and potential school populations to predict needs for teachers and facilities, etc.
