About Census Records

Federal Census Population Schedules, are taken every ten years.  They are available for Medina County, Texas for 1850 through 1930,  except for 1890  when most of the records were destroyed by fire including Medina County records.  In addition to Population Schedules, Industry and Agricultural Schedules are available for 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880; Mortality Schedules for 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880; Slave Schedules for 1850 and 1860 and Union Veterans Schedules for 1890.  The Republic of Texas (1836-1845) didn't take a census, but county tax rolls can be used for research purposes.  They can be found on microfilm and are available at several locations, one being Clayton Library for Genealogical Research in Houston.

This website contains the Population Schedules (census records) that have been transcribed and submitted by volunteers.  We appreciate their time and willingness to aid fellow researchers.  Remember that the originals were hand written and misspelled names, illegible writing and other errors are possible.
