==Online Federal Censuses==
===Population Schedules===
Starting in 1790, federal population schedules were taken every 10 years in the United States. [[United States Census|'''Click here for more information''']] about federal census records. <br><br>
Before becoming a state in 1846, Iowa was part of the Wisconsin and Iowa Territory. It will not be included in the early censuses.
