Harris County 1870 Census Page


This census information should be taken with a dose of caution. Most researchers find that census records are essentially reliable, although everyone has come across more than a few mistakes. Most errors are as innocent as a spelling variation, or an age being a year off. Some errors are typographical or a misunderstanding of the letters when transcribing. For the most part, the census is a solid and dependable method of researching your family history in Harris county.

This 1870 Census of Harris Co., TX, with every-name Index, was compiled by members of the Houston Genealogical Forum. Special thanks to Lynwood Peterson whose "labor of love" converted and uploaded this entire census to the Internet.
