Dodge County Nebraska 1885 Census

In accordance with an act of the Nebraska Legislature a census was authorized for the year 1885. The census was to use the schedules and forms of the tenth national census. The 1885 census of Nebraska is available as National Archives and Records Service microfilm publication no M352-0014(Dodge Co)

Several years ago member of the Eastern Nebraska Genealogical Society (ENGS) began a card file project to abstract and index some of the neighboring counties. Indexes, for 1885, are now complete for Burt, Butler, Dodge, rural Douglas, Colfax, Cuming, Sarpy, Saunders and Washington counties. The original card file is housed in the ENGS library for use of society members.

The card files are now being converted to computer print outs and Web site use. They were transcribed and proofed by Claire Mares.
Head of household entries are in alphabetical order. Persons with a surname different from head of household are included with the original family and listed a 2nd time under their own name with reference to the original family.

Family names beginning with:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M Mc N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Researchers are encouraged to obtain copies of the original census for additional information. Because more than one set of numbers is used for the pages and frames on the microfilm, the following information may help located a citation.
