Nevada State Census Records

Federal censuses for the state of Nevada began in 1870 and continued every ten years thereafter. They are currently available through 1920 (excepting the mostly destroyed 1890 census). All are indexed in at least one format. Nevada's inhabitants were included in the Utah Territory in the 1850 enumeration. As well, the counties of Carson, Humboldt, and St. Mary's were in Utah Territory in 1860.

At the Division of Archives and Records, there is a partial census for the territory for 1862 and 1863; there is also a complete one for 1875. The 1875 census includes all members of the household and is published in the Appendix to Journals of Senate and Assembly, of the Eighth Session of the Legislature of the State of Nevada, 1877, vols. 2 and 3, with a microfiche index. These are available in the Las Vegas Family History Center as well.
