Collection Time Period

The official enumeration date of this census is May 1, 1875, and the census lists the inhabitants of the state of Minnesota as of that date.

Record Description

The record is a printed form that was filled in by hand by the enumerator. The records are arranged by county and community.

Record Content

Minnesota 1875 Census (08-256) DGS 4482154 71.jpg

These are the key genealogical facts found in the 1875 Minnesota State Census:

  • Name of each individual in the household
  • Individual’s age
  • Individual’s gender
  • Individual’s color
  • Place of birth (state or territory if in the U.S., or country if foreign born)
  • If the individual’s father and mother were foreign born
  • If the individual served in the army during the Civil War

How to Use the Records

A census can provide you with names and ages of family members, which can be used to calculate birth or marriage dates. It can also provide the name of the county and town where your ancestor lived and the names of people living with the family. You may also find relatives who lived nearby. The census may identify individuals for whom other records may not exist.

Record History

State censuses were taken in Minnesota every ten years beginning in 1865 through 1905. Each census includes most individuals living within the counties enumerated.

Why This Record Was Created

The census was compiled to obtain a description and a count of the population of the state of Minnesota.

Record Reliability

The information is generally reliable. However, use it with some caution, since the information may have been given to a census taker by any member of the family or by a neighbor. Some of the facts and figures may be incorrect or be inadvertently false.
