IGS Adds 1850-1880 Agricultural Census Indexes for Southeastern Indiana

The Indiana Genealogical Society has added databases about the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 agricultural censuses for 3 southeastern Indiana counties to the County Records section of our Members Only area:

--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Dearborn County, Indiana (1850)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Dearborn County, Indiana (1860)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Dearborn County, Indiana (1870)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Dearborn County, Indiana (1880)

--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Ohio County, Indiana (1850)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Ohio County, Indiana (1860)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Ohio County, Indiana (1870)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Ohio County, Indiana (1880)

--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Switzerland County, Indiana (1860)
--Index to Agricultural Schedule for Switzerland County, Indiana (1870)

NOTE: The agricultural schedule was a supplement to the federal census taken in the 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880 and 1900 census years. It asked detailed questions about those who had farms, including the number of livestock, the kinds of crops produced and how many acres it was.

These databases are courtesy of Tina Lyons. They are premium databases, accessible only to IGS members.

The Indiana Genealogical Society now has 1,004 databases in the Members Only area. Each of Indiana's 92 counties has at least 4 databases.
