Rusk County Archives
holds complete, transcribed Federal Census records for 1850, 1860, and 1900, as
well as jpg images of the 1850 and 1860 records.
You can find a searchable index for the 1850, 1870
and 1900 Federal Census records and the original images at
FamilyHistory.com. They also have indexes for the 1860 and 1880
Census Records but no images yet. Unfortunately, the 1870 Census is not searchable by county.
There is a more sophisticated search engine, also located at
for the 1880 Federal Census but no images.
