Welcome to History Hub
Going to need more information for a search, residences, family members, military, and any other information that you may have
Dear Ms. Chasteen,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
One way to establish a connection between two individuals is to locate them on census records. We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1790 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1800 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1810 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1820 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1830 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1840 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Robert Barnes and Joseph Allen Barnes. These records are arranged by state, then county, thereunder by city, township or minor civil division. 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.
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.
For information about the U.S. Census, see the Census Bureau technical documentation and questionnaires as well as NARA’s page on Census Records.
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.
We also suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the History Hub Blog titled Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers. Also, the FamilySearch Research wiki for United States Genealogy may be useful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
