Van Buren Co., Michigan

    1870  Census Index

 An Index of all persons living in Van Buren Co., MI

     In 1991, The Van Buren Regional Genealogical Society published a book which was an all name index of the 1870 Van Buren Census.  All of the books have been sold, and it was decided that this index should be published on the Web.  The index alphabetically lists each person, the township in which they resided, and the page number of the census.  Please be advised that some of these names are hard to read in the original census, so check all spellings for your surname.

    I have scanned the book in its entirety, and each page is listed separately, with the page number below the page.  I have broken this down into 25  Web pages.  Below the Index, you will find a listing of the Township abbreviations and a map showing where the townships are located.

    I have also added a page in which you may list any Surname spelling corrections for names that you feel may be in error.  This page may be accessed at -  1870 Surname Corrections
    I also have a link of the original Title Pages of the book.
