Dear Ms. Mcclellan,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Henry Robinson in New York and Michigan. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may wish to search Ancestry or FamilySearch for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
Next, we located a series titled Indian Census Rolls, 1885-1940 (M595) in the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75) that may have a listing for the Ottawa tribe, which was relocated to Michigan in the 1830s, then to Kansas, and finally to Oklahoma. If you know the name of Henry Robinson’s wife, you may be able to learn more about her from these or similar records. For more information about these records, please email RDT1 at email@example.com. When embarking on Native American genealogy, please note that the records in the custody of NARA often only detail those living on the reservations or being administered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. If an ancestor was Native American and left the reservation or did not have interaction with the United States Government as such, they will not be recorded in NARA’s records and tracing their genealogy may be difficult.
Additionally, the National Archives website provides Resources for Genealogists and Family Historians that may be helpful for you. You might find some information about Henry Robinson and his family in Census Records or American Indian Records, for example. If he served in the military, you may also wish to learn more about Military Records Research.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
You may also wish to review the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services - Birth, Death, Marriage and Divorce Records. Marriage records from 1867 to the present can be ordered online. Plus, FamilySearch offers guides to Michigan Online Genealogy Records and New York Online Genealogy Records that you might find useful.
Finally, we suggest that you contact local historical societies or libraries in the areas where Henry Robinson lived for any assistance.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
