The listing of NARA microfilm on Ancestry is helpful and I use it 
frequently, but it is also somewhat deceptive.  For example, the first entry is for 
NARA Microfilm Publication Number A1154, Non-population Census Schedules for 
Washington Territory, 1860-1880, for which there are eight rolls of film.  

However, Ancestry has apparently only digitized one of those rolls, Roll 3, 
which is the Mortality Schedules.  Roll 1, the Agricultural Census of 1860, 
Roll 4, the Agricultural Census of 1870, and others are not available on 
Ancestry.  (Or, so it appears; Ancestry has changed the "browse" function in 
recent months, so it is not as easy as it used to be to see what they 
actually have).

I believe it is the harder to find records, like the Social Statistics, 
Agricultural Census, and Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes schedules 
that Rondina is asking about.

I use the full schedules at NARA in DC so am not familiar with the missing 
ones on Ancestry. 
Thanks for mentioning the ones that are missing.
