1875 Minnesota Census
286,168 Records

KinSource's 1875 Minnesota State Census is a searchable database that is available via subscription. The 1875 Minnesota Census database is especially useful for locating information about people living in Minnesota between the 1870 and 1880 Federal Censuses. These records may be the first available record for immigrants to the United States, since many immigrants came to Minnesota in the 1870's. This database is an every name index, and the records are searchable by first and/or last name, including the ability for Soundex searches. You can also limit the search to specific counties. Once you find a name, you can view all members of that household which can be very helpful when trying to find someone with a very common name.

KinSource's 1875 Minnesota Census Database contains a more complete set of names than other 1875 Minnesota Census records on the Web. This database contains records that are not available, or are unreadable, on the microfilm, including the full names of people whose names cannot be read on the microfilm, with the most in Kandiyohi and Mower counties. Also, household numbers that cannot be seen on many 1875 census pages have been obtained so that household groups can be displayed. KinSource has also used various records to verify the census transcriptions for accuracy. These include the Minnesota Death Record Index, the 1885 Minnesota Census and the 1875 Minneapolis City Directory for Minneapolis.
