*From 1846 to 1863 - [[New Mexico]] Territory included land that later would become Arizona and southern Nevada. <br>
 
*In 1852 - New Mexico Territory set up counties that stretched east and west from the Texas border to the California border, including land that became Arizona and southern Nevada. Part of present-day Lincoln County, Nevada was once part of [[Taos County, Nevada|Taos]] County of New Mexico.<ref>William Thorndale, and William Dollarhide, ''Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, 1790-1920'' (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing, 1987), 26. {{WorldCat|69672637|disp=At various libraries (WorldCat)}}; {{FHL|545087|item|disp=FHL Book 973 X2th}}.</ref> <ref>''Original Counties of New Mexico Territory'' (map) at http://www.nmgs.org/Graphics/nmcoun-orig.jpg (accessed 9 August 2011).</ref> There is a small chance that a few records from 1846 to 1863 '''''may&nbsp;''''' have been sent to the [[Taos County, Nevada|Taos County]] courthouse in New Mexico. <br>
 
*29 December 1863 [[Arizona]]'s three judicial districts were established by the ''Arizona Territory Organic Act'' from the western half of [[New Mexico]] Territory.<ref name="AZ1">Wikipedia contributors, "1st Arizona Territorial Legislature" in ''Wikipedia: the Free Encyclopedia'' at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_Arizona_Territorial_Legislature (accessed 8 August 2011).</ref> All previous counties were dissolved, and eventually four new counties were created in the new Arizona Territory. <br>
 
*By November 1864 [[Mohave County, Arizona|Mohave County]] was created by the Arizona legislature as an original county from parts of the 2nd and 3rd Judicial Districts. A part of the [[3rd Judicial District, Arizona|2nd Judicial District]] eventually became part of [[Lincoln_County,_Nevada|Lincoln County, Nevada]].<ref name="AZ1" /> Some records from 1863 to 1871 may have been sent to the Mohave County, Arizona offices. <br>

Lincoln County boundaries were modified on three other occasions. In 1867, a portion of the western edge of Lincoln County was ceded to Nye County. In 1875, the northern boundary was adjusted following the acquisition of the northeast corner of Nye County. But the largest boundary adjustment occurred in the year 1909, when Lincoln County was split in half and Clark County was formed from the southern half.

The first enumeration for Nevada before it was a state in 1864, was in the 1850 Census in both New Mexico and Utah Territories, but the area had not been divided into counties. Those living there may be in the Utah 1851 Census. For 1860, Nevada was again enumerated in New Mexico and Utah Territories. [21] A partial state census exists for Nevada in 1862 and 1863 and a full state census exists for 1875. [22] See links listed below.

State and Territory Census Records

Federal Census Records

Federal Censuses were taken for the state of Nevada starting in 1870. Although, those living in south-eastern Nevada in 1870 may be enumerated in Utah or Arizona because of disputed boundaries with Nevada.[23] For links to Federal Census indexes, see Nevada Census.
