Please note that there has been an UPDATE to Surname field help. "If you come across records where there is an individual listed with a surname and others listed below without a surname (generally this is the head of household and their family) please copy the surname down until you encounter the next surname."

About this project This collection contains population schedules for both cities and counties in Kansas. They include information about agriculture and livestock from the year, as well as the name of the head of each family in the township.

Project Instructions

This collection contains population schedules for both cities and counties in Kansas. They include information about agriculture and livestock from the year, as well as the name of the head of each family in the township.

Information is being keyed from title page images and any images that contain names. The majority of the images will not have names and should be marked as "Cover Page, Section Header, etc."


Project-specific sample images and form field help:

Choose a sample image from below to see the corresponding form field examples.
Census Form
Title Page

Census Form

31984_238131-02196.jpg

Additional Image Samples



Use the "Census Form" type for images that contain names to be keyed. From these images, key all names and any date and location information that might be available. If the image is far too illegible* to key any names from, mark the image as "Cover Page, Section Header, etc."

  • Here is an example of an illegible page. You can tell that there are names but no matter what you do to adjust the image you can't read them.

If you can read any part of the page, please mark the record as a Census form type and enter the heading and any names that you can decipher.
Note: there are two reels in particular that are nearly entirely illegible, these are 2278162 and 2278164 (the enumeration date for both is 1 Mar 1919). Reels 2278163 and 2278164 contain faded, but still salvageable pages, other images have some spots of damage, but are not lost, an attempt should be made to salvage these.
