In large cities it helps to first learn the person’s address by searching the city directory under the census year (see the "Directories" section of this outline). Determine which enumeration district held that address. Then look for that enumeration district and address on the original census schedules.
To learn which enumeration district in a big city held a specific address:
- Buckway, Eileen G., comp. U. S. 1910 Federal Census: Unindexed States: A Guide to Finding Census Enumeration Districts for Unindexed Cities, Towns, and Villages. Salt Lake City, Utah: Family History Library, 1992. (Family History Library book 973 X2bu 1910; fiche 6101340 set of 8.) This lists all Indiana towns, or wards, with their 1910 census enumeration district numbers and the Family History Library film numbers. Evansville, Fort Wayne, Gary, Indianapolis, South Bend, and Terre Haute each have special instructions, often including the library’s city directory book and film numbers.
The Indiana Division of the Indiana State Library has additional 1910 city directories for Kokomo, Lafayette, New Albany, Richmond, Terre Haute, and Vincennes. Local public libraries may also have city directories for their communities for 1910.
Selected enumeration district maps for Indiana in 1910 are listed in:
- United States. Bureau of the Census. Cross Index to Selected City Streets and Enumeration Districts, 1910 Census. National Archives Microfiche Publications, M1283. Washington, DC: National Archives, 1984. (Family History Library fiche 6331481)
The enumeration district maps are on the following microfiche:
- Davidson, J. W. Map of Evansville, and Howell, Indiana, 1910: With Suburban Plats. [N.p., 1910?] (Family History Library map case 977.233/E1 E7d; fiche 6049928)

In 1820 an enumeration was made of all white male inhabitants (voters) age 21 or older. The records for Crawford, Gibson, Jackson, Jennings, Knox, Monroe, Orange, Perry, Posey, Ripley, Vanderburgh, Washington, and Wayne counties are at the Indiana State Archives. These records have been published and are available as:
