When the first federal census was taken in 1790, residents of the nation’s capital living north of the Potomac River were enumerated with Prince George’s and Montgomery counties in Maryland. Those living south of the river were counted as Virginians; however, the 1790 census for Virginia has been lost. There is no 1810 census for the District of Columbia.

Collections of microfilmed census records can be searched at the National Archives and its regional branches (see pages 11-12); the Washingtoniana Division of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library (see District of Columbia Archives, Libraries, and Societies); and The Family History Library (FHL). Published abstracts of census records can also be found in those repositories.
