What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]
The collection consists of an index and images of the Kansas state census taken on 1 March 1905. The census enumerates all household members. The 1905 Kansas State Census information spans four pages.
State censuses in Kansas were taken in the years between many of the federal censuses. This is extremely useful to genealogical research, it makes it possible to track people who lived in Kansas more frequently. For families that moved every few years, this is most helpful to track missing children or missing deaths in the family.
