IGS Adds 1850-1880 Manufacturing Census Indexes for Southeastern Indiana

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

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

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

--Index to Manufacturing Schedule for Switzerland County, Indiana (1850)
--Index to Manufacturing Schedule for Switzerland County, Indiana (1860)
--Index to Manufacturing Schedule for Switzerland County, Indiana (1870)
--Index to Manufacturing Schedule for Switzerland County, Indiana (1880)

NOTE: The manufacturing schedule was a supplement to the federal census taken in the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 census years. It asked detailed questions about those who had businesses (e.g. blacksmiths or saddlers), including the number of employees and the value of the amount of products they produced each year.

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

The Indiana Genealogical Society now has 1,028 databases in the Members Only area. Each of Indiana's 92 counties has at least 4 databases.
