Genealogy Research - Affordable US Census Lookups

I can do census lookups for you on all available US Federal Census Records 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1890 (mostly lost), 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 for all states where available. See list below of what years are available for each state. The 1950 census will become available in 2022!

I will provide a copy of the record(s) or an abstract of the record if preferred.If the search turns up negative, I will provide a report showing the steps I took in attempting to find your person of interest.

Please provide as much information as you can that will help in my search, including:

1. Full Name of person you are interested in.
2. Date of birth or approximation.
3. Place of birth and any known places of residence.
4. Death date and location, so I don't search past their lifetime.
5. The names of their parents, spouse or siblings, if known.
6. If you already have them on one or more census records, let me know which one so I can start from there and not duplicate what you already have.


$5.00 for one census lookup. *

$10.00 for up to three census lookups (for example, three censuses for one person, or three different people, one census record each.) *

$15.00 for a lookup of an individual's lifetime in census records. Example, somone born in 1851 and died in 1915 should be on the 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900 and 1910 census. *

* If it's a particularly difficult request, such as finding a common name across multiple states, then I would have to charge more. I'll give you an estimate first of course.

Please contact me via email (link below) and provide as much information as you can on the person you're interested in (using the information requested above), and let me know what census record(s) you want. I'll send you a money request via PayPal for the proper amount ($5.00, $10.00 or $15.00). Once I receive payment I'll begin the search as soon as possible and keep you informed of my progress. If it turns out I can't find your person, I'll provide a refund of all but $5.00. Since that's the minimum, if you only want one census record, and I come up with negative results, there will be no refund issued. However, I will give you a report of where and how I searched, which may aid you in future searches.

Note1: For African American individuals, unless they were free prior to the Civil War, they are unlikely to be listed by name on any census prior to 1870. I will gladly check the 1850 and 1860 slave schedules if you wish. However, only the name of the slave owner is listed. The men and women who were enslaved were enumerated by age and sex only, and not by name. Therefore I would need to know what county and state you suspect they were living in, otherwise it would be impossible to identify them on those records, even tentatively.

Note2: The 1790 through 1840 census records only included the names of the head of household. All other family members were enumerated by age and sex categories and not by names, so it is impossible to positively identify individuals on those census unless they were heads of households. Beginning in 1850 all family members were included on the census by name, excluding slaves as noted above.

Note3: The 1890 census was destroyed due to fire and water damage. Some of it remains, but not much.

Note4: If you've already done a rather exhaustive search for the person(s) of interest on the census and didn't find them, then the odds are strong that I won't be able to either. I can certainly try, but keep in mind some people just got missed by the census takers for various reasons.
