What is in this Collection?[edit | edit source]

The collection consists of a name index of the Kansas state census taken on 1 March 1915. The census enumerates all household members. State censuses in Kansas were taken in the years in between many of the federal censuses. This is extremely useful to genealogical research, seeing as this makes it possible to track people who lived in Kansas more frequently. For families that moved every few years, this is most helpful to track missing children or missing deaths in the family.

Image Visibility[edit | edit source]
