There is a letter of explanation and a map for 1909, but there is no census.

The "scattered area" Indians of Nevada reside in the Northern part of the state, a great distance from the Carson Indian School. During 1927-1929 a separate census was made for each scattered colony, but in 1930 they were combined under the heading "Scattered Indians".

In the 1937 census, if the person appeared on a different census roll for the previous year the name is abbreviated. The abbreviation and what it stands for are listed at the bottom of the census page involved.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.
