Is there a Mortality Schedule for Marquette County, WI in the 1880 U.S. Census? If so, how do I acce
The U.S. Federal Census for 1880 conducted Mortality Schedules for most states and counties in the U.S. However, I have been unable to locate or access that set of schedules for the 14 communities in Marquette County, Wisconsin. Some websites indicate such a schedule exists; others suggest it does NOT. I'm looking for a definitive answer and directions on how to access such a set of schedules.
@User16049583400907056960 Glad to hear you had some success in getting the information you were looking for. You might be able to connect with the Family History Library through their website: https://www.familysearch.org/family-history-library/welcome-to-the-family-history-library If you give them the information you have received, perhaps they can help.0
@Barry La Mar Bartlett I was not able to find the 1880 Mortality Schedule for Marquette County, Wisconsin either. Is there another record that can be searched such as a probate record? Or have you not been able to find that document? If you'd like some help you could share the FamilySearch ID of the person you're working on and what you'd like to find.
Patricia... If you follow the LINKS from the page on FamilySearch.org that addresses the Mortality Schedules for the 1880 census, you'll get to this page (https://search.ancestry.com/search/dbextra.aspx?dbid=8756). Note for Wisconsin it says there are 4 rolls at the Wisconsin Historical Society. I'm assuming those are microfilm images of all the Mortality Schedules for the 1880 Census. I've sent an email request to the WHS and their auto-response said 4-6 weeks for a reply. Not sure why those schedules have not been filmed and archived like the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Mortality Schedules. I'm not searching a particular person but rather causes of death in Marquette County 1840-1900 for some historical research. My great-grandfather lived in Marquette County, WI. We have all his info and same for his family. But CAUSES OF DEATH are difficult to find in one location for a group of people except on Mortality Schedules. Thanks for your reply. --The Bear in Utah0
Dennis & Patricia... Received a nice reply from the WHS Library. They DO have all the 1880 Mortality Schedules for Wisconsin on microfilm. Series 1678 Vol. 30 Reel 1 AP93-0305 Adams-Sauk [part] contains the data I'm trying to find. The librarian said the Genealogical Society of Utah copied the original paper schedules in 1981 onto microfilm and a copy should be available through the Utah Family History Library. Due to COVID, the WHSL is not lending books or microfilm at present. So, I'm still not sure there's a DIGITAL version of the 1880 Marquette, WI Mortality Schedule available online. Not sure who to talk to next in Utah about trying to gain access to what I need, especially in digital format. Any suggestions are welcome.0
