1880 US Census
"black" and "mulatto"
heads of families

Here is a list of "some of" the heads of families in Rensselaer County, NY in the 1880 US Census who were described as "black" or "mulatto". The list was generously contributed by a researcher who prefers to remain anonymous. If you see a name here and want to know more about him or her, you can view the whole family online. The LDS Church has made available online -- and for free -- the entire 1880 US Census for the whole of the USA, as well as the entire 1881 Canadian Census and the 1881 British Census. These censuses are searchable by every name, enabling researchers to find the millions of people who were in the 1880 US Census who were not previously indexed because their households did not contain a child age 10 years or under. To access these censuses, go to http://www.familysearch.org, then click on SEARCH, and then click on CENSUS. If you don't find what you are looking for, don't give up. There are a few odd mistranscriptions. I've overcome this by entering "Smith" as a search value and narrowing down the geographical area to the town I want, and on the search results page, I click on any Smith in that town, and when the household comes up, I click on "previous household" repeatedly until I come to the end of that town, and then I click the "back" button repeatedly until I'm back at the original Smith family, and then I click on "next household" repeatedly until I've searched the whole of the census for that town. I did find the Fullers I was looking for - they had been mistranscribed as Fallon.

The list below is alphabetised by forename, but you can search for the surname you want by going up to the toolbar and clicking "Edit" and then clicking "Find" and entering the relevant surname as the search value.
