Characteristics of This Project

  • This project includes only one type of form.
  • Each batch contains only one image.
  • Each image usually includes 50 records.

Please Note

  • We are working with Ancestry.com to enhance the 1930 US Census index. We are using their current published information as the basis for half of our batches to be indexed. Therefore, you will download many batches that will have information already indexed for the following fields:
    1. Surname
    2. Given Names
    3. Age
    4. Place of Birth (for the head of household)
  • Please verify the previously indexed information as you index the other fields.
  • Note to arbitrators: The information from Ancestry.com is in the Key A column.

Description of the Records

  • The 1930 U.S. Federal Census is handwritten on printed forms.
  • Each form usually contains 50 records.

Additional Information

Access Restriction

  • The completed index will be freely accessible online to the general public when the collection is published. The digital images will be accessible to active FamilySearch account holders once an authentication system is put in place on Record Search. Until authentication is available, the images will not be accessible.
