Finding Family in the 1930 Census


From Campbell County History News - July 2002


      The Campbell County Historical and Genealogical Society has recently ordered copies of the 1930 Campbell County census microfilm for our research office but local researchers donít need to wait. The Kenton County Public Library announced receipt of the complete 1930 Kentucky census microfilm collection in early July. Campbell County records are found on two rolls of film covering a total of 55 Enumeration Districts. Some enumeration districts have nice readable handwriting while other districts have handwriting guaranteed to challenge the most determined researcher.

Work on the Soundex ended before reaching Campbell County so research will be time consuming. One way to limit the search will be to use the 1928-29 city directory at the Kenton County Public Library to determine where you ancestors may have been living when the 1930 census was taken. Be sure to record the street address because that will help you to determine which enumeration district you need.

Hopefully you have been able to determine where your relatives were living in 1930 because that will significantly narrow down the records you need to research. Campbell County census records start at the end of microfilm Roll Number 737 with the following Enumeration Districts (ED):
