1890 Veterans Schedules

The 1890 Veterans Schedules were separate schedules of the 1890 Federal Census that were made of Union Civil War veterans or their widows. Confederate veterans were mistakenly listed as well. The records are also known as the "Special Schedules of the Eleventh Census (1890) Enumerating Union Veterans and Widows of Union Veterans of the Civil War". (NARA M123) (118 microfilm rolls)

1910 U.S. Federal Census

The 1910 Federal Census asked if a person was "A survivor of the Union or Confederate Army or Navy".

1930 U.S. Federal Census

The 1930 Federal Census asked if a person was "A veteran of the U.S. military or naval forces mobilized for any war or expedition" and "What war or expedition" they served in.

1940 U.S. Federal Census

The 1940 Federal Census asked "Is this person a veteran of the United States military forces or the wife, widow, or under 18-year-old child of a veteran?" and "If child, is veteran-father dead?" and "War or Military" served in. These were only asked of persons which were recorded on 2 of the 40 lines per page, which would have covered about five percent of the population.

State Censuses

Some state censuses also identified Union veterans. Examples on microfilm at the Family History Library include the New York census of 1865 and the Wisconsin census of 1885.
