There are several online name indexes to the Federal Census. Ancestry.com, footnote.com, and heritagequest.com are by subscription. While familysearch.com is free, the indexes and images are not as extensive as Ancestry or Footnote provides. The National Archives has free public access to ancestry.com and footnote.com if the patron is using a computer terminal at the National Archives locations
(Washington DC, regional archives or presidential libraries). Some public libraries have free access to heritagequest.com for their library card holders.
When trying to locate names in the indexes remember that spellings of names changed over time or there may have been typos when entered into the online indexes, or the handwriting on the ledgers was difficult to read. Remember also that one index can have a correct spelling when another index does not.
If there are no listings for a full name, then try just the surname with a state or county to narrow the field.
There are several entries in the Federal Census ledgers for various family members from the 1860 to 1930 (the most recent census available to the public). Here is information regarding spelling and indexed entries which should help anyone looking for these names in the census. These people are listed as "Head" of household. Unless indicated differently, all entries are in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota. Monongalia County existed until 1870 (with New London as the County Seat) when it merged with Kandiyohi County to the south. Norway Lake Township then became Arctander and Lake Andrew Townships. There are no 1890 census entries because most of the files were destroyed in a fire.
