*'''1913-1914''' A detailed census of [[Germans_from_Russia|German immigrants from Russia ]]living in Lincoln was taken for Nebraska. The information is similar to that found in the 1900 census, but the town or colony of birth is also given. It is arranged by street. (Family History Library film 833157.)
 
*'''1885''' The Federal Government took a special census of Nebraska, which is on 56 microfilms at the Family History Library and at the Nebraska State Historical Society. The society also has the state ''Gazetteer and Business Directory for 1886'' and a card index made from the directory that provides a partial index to the census. The Family History Library does not have the directory or the card index.
 
*The '''1854, 1855, and 1856''' Nebraska territorial censuses have been transcribed, indexed, and published in: Cox, Eunice Evelyn. ''1854, 1855, 1856 Nebraska Territory Censuses''. Ellensburg, Washington: Cox, 1977. (Family History Library [http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=titledetails&titleno=183518&disp=1854%2C+1855%2C+1856+Nebraska+Territory+%20%20&columns=*,0,0 book 978.2 X2p 1854-1856; film 1036024 item 2; fiche 6051283].)
 
*'''1854, 1855, 1856, 1865, and 1869''' Territorial and state censuses exist for parts of Nebraska. The county enumerations of several eastern Nebraska counties, were published in:[http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ne/topic/resources/OLLibrary/Journals/NMGR/censindx.html ''The Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Record'', vols. 13-22, 1932-44] (Family History Library film 162018).&nbsp;The State Archives at the Nebraska State Historical Society has a card index for the 1865 and 1869 censuses. The existing records are at the Nebraska State Historical Society.

=== Why use a census?  ===
 
 
A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.
