[APG Public List] Footnote and special schedules

Good afternoon Jill

I know the Florida State Census of 1935 & 1945 are all digitized and indexed
on Ancestry.  They are still available in paper form at the Florida State
Library and Archives in Tallahassee, Florida.

The Florida 1885 Agricultural Census has been digitized and indexed on
Ancestry.  Unfortunately so many of the names on that census are simply the
initials and surname, i.e. F. L. Sherhouse instead of Floyd L. Sherhouse.  

This is a very good substitute for the lost 1890 census for Florida. There
are some counties lost in this census.

I understand what Footnote is trying to do with the fancy new census images,
but contrary to their statement that ALL the census records will be on their
site, they are not putting up the special schedules. Does anyone have
Internet access to these?


The Record Search Pilot at FamilySearch.org has the 1850 mortality and slave
schedules. They are indexed and digitized. I don't know what the plans are
for future indexing projects, but I would watch this site. The FHL has the
1850 to 1880 mortality schedules on film, and I would expect them to be
included over time as the digitization of their films progresses.


Ancestry has the 1850-1880 mortality schedules indexed and digitized, but
obviously a subscription is required.


I have not found agricultural or manufacturing schedules online, other than
transcriptions. Like Rondina, I would be interested in any other digitized
special schedules that others are aware of.
