1894 State of Michigan Census

The 1894 Michigan Census for St. Clair County was transcribed from the original census books by a diligent group of volunteers. Every effort was made to obtain an accurate transcription. Please keep in mind that these records were handwritten and at times hard to decipher. I urge you to check for spelling variations. The census records can be viewed on microfilm at the St. Clair County Library.

The UsGenWeb is hosting the online transcriptions for the 1894 census. Both the online transcriptions and the indices they have created can be found by following the link below to their directory page.
