Census Records

The Federal Census is taken every ten years since 1790.  Census records are opened to the public after seventy-two years; the census records from 1790 through 1930 are currently available.  Mitchell County was established in 1861 and carved out of Yancey, Watauga, Caldwell, Burke, and McDowell counties.  Therefore, from 1790 through 1860 the research must refer to those respective counties' census.   This page provides links to free online resources.
