    Gerald Lewis Newbie

      Can the National Archive send me of the complete PDF copy of the 1830 Jackson County Missouri include people by township and owned slaves?  I can not get a complete copy of the 1830 Jackson County Missouri census via Ancestry or Family Search.

          Dear Mr. Lewis,

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1830 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29). This series was microfilmed as Fifth Census of the United States, 1830 (National Archives Microfilm Publication No. M19, Record Group 29). The schedules for Jackson County, Missouri, are on Reel 73. See also Frequently Asked Questions About the 1830 Census. For more information about these schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at archives1reference@nara.gov


          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.
