Census Records
For Marion County Arkansas

The transcribing of Federal and State Census records is an on-going project for the USGenWeb Project and county web site managers. If you are willing to transcribe a Marion County Census or even one township of a census please let me know. (address at bottom of page)

If you are unfamiliar with the History and Use of the Federal Census Records please take a moment and read about them

If you don't understand Townships you can find out about them here and you can find out when township boundaries changed here.

Census Microfilm may be acquired from many different sources. It can be ordered thru inter-Library loan at your local genealogy library, it may be rented from the Federal Archives, or your local LDS Family History Center. Most local genealogy libraries have a subscription to Heritage Quest which has scanned census images online. also has scanned images online but you must have a subscription to access those.

If you are willing to transcribe a township for any census year please contact me. Thanks Linda
