Boone County Missouri 1830 Census

This is the initial test of the Boone County Missouri Census project. We will provide scanned images of the census microfilm and as transcription is done, that will be added and indexed to the site.

We scanned the images at 2700DPI (dots per inch) which yields a fairly large image (about 2700 x 2500 typically). Since most people do not have their computer monitors set to that high a resolution on their monitors, (many are at 1024x768 or perhaps 1280x1024), we thought that dealing with the larger images, while they do have merit in interpreting hard to read script, was a bit much. So we provide half sized images (usually 1300 x 1200) which are still very readable but easier to see more of the page.

The 1830 census is microfilmed in two sections for a single census "page". The first section for a page is of the left half which normally contains the head of household name and primary count information, labeled A in the table below. The second section is the right side which contains additional count information, notably slaves, free colored persons and disabled, labeled B in the table.

We extracted the section with the head of household names from the large images and provided them as a easy way to view just that section of the census. Those are labeled N in the table below. We expect this to be used primarily in transcribing the names. Please note sometimes we had to include the first count column since some individuals names extended into that column.

WARNING -- the full sized image are very large (around 600KB) and on a modem link can take some time to download. If you are using a cable modem or DSL link, they are quite tolerable. The half sized images are naturally around 300KB, large if you are downloading frequently or many, but once the transcription is done they should seldom be needed except to double check a spelling or just to see the page on which your ancestor was recorded.

As transcriptions become available, the transcription column will contain links to that information. The status conditions in the Transcription column are:
"Needs TR" - transcription volunteer needed
"Doing TR" - transcription in process
"Needs PRF" - transcription done, needs proofing

I am somewhat confused about the area covered by page 104. Page 103 shows totals for the Rocky Fork township. Page 104 is marked RockyFork with no totals, and page 105 is marked Perche township. Whether page 104 is part of Rocky Fork as labeled or really part of Perche is an open question. The total pages at the end have the results added as part of the Rocky Fork totals, so I presume it must be counted there. Also of note, the microfile records have no page 134. Presumably it was blank between the last of Cedar township and the page totals pages.

To jump to a particular page, click the page number in the left most column and the transcript will be positioned to that pages data (if it has been transcribed). To jump to the beginning of the 1830 transcript, click here.
