The following resources are available at the library:
Census Indexes: 1837, 1850, 1860, 1880

Census Records on Microfilm: 1837 (online), 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920
(Any year that does not have an index, they try to look up as they have time, but because the census records are on microfilm, it takes quite a while to search each page and staff time is limited.)

Enumeration of Educable Children: 1890, 1892, 1894, 1896, 1900 These are NOT indexed. They are being put online, first to see if your ancestor is here. The 1890 and the 1896 Enumerations are online now. Currently the 1890 Enumeration is indexed.

Mortality Schedules: (1850, 1860, 1870, 1880)

Tax lists/Land Rolls: (1834, 1835, 1836, 1837, 1842, 1846, 1848, 1854) The only one indexed is 1848. All of these are posted online. See Tax-Land Lists
