Revision as of 15:43, 4 April 2010

Many counties took school censuses at various times between 1888 and 1932 (mostly 1895 to 1910). These list every person in the household. The Family History Library has copies of school censuses from 18 counties, such as:

   * Monroe County Kentucky. Clerk of the County Court. School Census, 1893–1903. Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1969. (Family History Library film 589661.) This school census lists the children’s name, age, sex, and parents’ names. 

1819--Kentucky took a state census for Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties.

1795--Kentucky took a state census.

1787--Kentucky was enumerated with parts of Virginia and West Virginia.

  • 1888-1932 (mostly 1895-1910) school censuses for many Kentucky counties. School censuses, where they exist, may only be available at local boards of education. A few are at the Kentucky State Archives, Kentucky Historical Society, or Family History Library.[1]
