This is a project that everyone can help with. If you would like to volunteer to help transcribe a census index, please contact Sharon or Elaine.  If you do not want to help transcribe, you can still help by ordering the census CD from S&K publications.

To order, click this link:  S & K List

For the 1900 Census CD, it will require 13 people to pledge to pay $20 each. For that $20 you will receive the CD of the actual filmed census.  S&K will also donate a CD of the filmed census to the USGenWeb where they will put it online for everyone to use. After 13 people have ordered the 1900 Census CD, it will take about 3 months to get it.  Then we will proceed with the next census.  (1910 census needs 15 people, 1920 census needs 17 people) So if you want a particular census, order it and put it in line to be filmed onto CD's.

When these census records become available online, we will link to them. Meanwhile you can access them by microfilm at some local libraries, LDS libraries, and the regional national archives.  Most libraries can order them as an interlibrary loan.
