Indexing the 1910 Census
9/27/2009
You've got questions about discovering, preserving and celebrating your family history; our experts have the answers.
Q: The 1910 US census: Will it ever be indexed?

A: The 1910 census index has been actively worked on by Heritage Quest as well as many individual genealogical societies and volunteers. Heritage Quest has published a CD for Connecticut, Indiana and New York. Other states are in the works. The Heritage Quest Web site at www.HeritageQuest.com has these CDs available for sale. The Northeast Regional National Archives and Records Administration facility in Waltham, Mass., purchases them as they become available so you might check in your regional facility as well.

Smaller geographic areas have been indexed by local and state societies and these indexes appear on the USGenWeb site at www.usgenweb.org. I would always check the county of interest on that Web site and post a query on the message board asking if anyone knows of an index either completed or in progress for that specific area.
