    1830 US Federal Census

    Mark O'Dell Newbie

      I found a poor Federal Census image and I am wondering if there is a way to find a better image or the original. Explanation:

      I am using the digital image on ancestry.com that is digitized from NARAs microfilm images. In an 1830 US Federal Census image, the second page image has a dark shadow near the binding that blocks several columns from view. I am wondering if there is a way to go back and get a better image of this page. The columns in question report the amount of slaves owned in the households for a district that I am researching.

       

      Thank you for any insight on whether a solution is possible.

       

      Thank you,
