Availability

The information will be found as annotations on the regular census schedules found in National Archives microfilm publication M252, Third Census of the United States, 1810 (71 rolls).

Some regional archives of the National Archives contain microfilm copies for the schedules of the specific states in their region.

The Family History Library has very few copies, but it does have the following:
          1820 Jackson County, Tennessee
          1850-1880 Arkansas
          1850-1880 Pennsylvania


1810 - Most have been lost.  Those left are bound with the population schedules.

Most of the schedules for later years have been destroyed, but some still exist.
