1890 Mississippi Surviving Solider’s, Sailor’s and Marines and Widow’s

Good Morning 

I understand that some records were destroyed by fire; however I was wondering if Mississippi’s were saved. If so were can I find them

Thank you

    We assume you are referring to the 1890 Special Veterans Census. While the beginning portion of the Special Census was lost along with the rest of the regular 1890 population schedules in the 1921 fire at the Census Bureau, the Veteran schedules for part of Kentucky and the remaining states, including Mississippi, survived. These schedules are reproduced in National Archives Microfilm Publication M123, Special Schedules of the Eleventh Census (1890) Enumerating Union Veterans and Widows of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and are available digitally. The schedules for the entire state of Mississippi are reproduced on roll 26. We would recommend you contact the Archives 1 Reference Branch (RR1R) for further information on how to access the digital census. You can reach the reference staff directly at archives1reference@nara.gov.

    We hope this information assists you with your research!
