When ordering film, recheck and verify the numbers. Errors occur, and neither this author nor this site can be responsible for incorrect orders.

Heritage Quest offers population schedules on microfilm for purchase or rental for members. They also sell population schedules on CD ROM. Order these by the National Archives Series and Roll number. One roll is on one CD.

When ordering from the Family History Library, go to your local Family History Center. The population schedules have "US/CAN Census Area" before the number. Non population schedules have "US/CAN" before the number. Films ordered through the Family History Center must be viewed at the Family History Center. Before ordering, be sure to check if someone else has already ordered it, or if it is on permanent loan.

Cleveland Public Library, Ohio Historical Society and State Library of Ohio each have a complete set of Ohio's extant population and non-population census schedules.

Western Reserve Historical Society has the most complete US Federal census collection in Northeastern Ohio.
