Florida State Census

Ancestry.com has added five Florida state censuses to their online collection: 1867, 1875, 1885, 1935, and 1945. Florida and South Dakota are the only two states to have completed a state census as recently as 1945. The 1935 and 1945 censuses are helpful to those searching for family in those states as the 1940 Federal Census has not yet been released (coming in 2012, I believe). The 1885 census is especially helpful to researchers as the 1890 Federal Census was almost completely destroyed.

The Ancestry.com Florida state census includes all counties for 1945 and 1935, all counties, except Alachua, Clay, Columbia, and Nassau for 1885, Alachua county only for 1875, and Hernando, Madison, Orange, and Santa Rosa counties onlyfor 1867.

Ancestry.com is a subscription service with both monthly and yearly subscriptions available.
