I am a newbie, so please pardon my ignorance. I have seen on the 1900 Fed Census records that I am m
It is the 1895 census.
His Family Search World Tree ID is 2762-CQM.
I’m not sure how to access this census, since my state is currently on shutdown, and my local FHC is closed. Any help in locating this census would be wonderful, and greatly appreciated.
Here is the link to WIKI Genealogy in FamilySearch. Remember that this is also a list to our partner pages. If you don't have an account with them, you can visit your local Family History Center. (If that is not open let us know what record you are wanting and we will see if we can help). Here is the list to online records for Oregon:
Good Luck and happy researching
Did you resolve your "missing child" question? I looked at your 2G'pa's record 2762-CQM and didn't find an 1895 Oregon census. However, while I was there, I noticed that someone added his nickname as a "Custom Event." There is a more efficient way to add a nickname that will benefit your searching. On the "Details" page, go to the "Other Information" block, select "Add Information," then choose "Alternate Name" near the top of the pulldown menu. From the popup window, where it says "Also Known As," use the little pulldown menu to select "Nickname," then enter the name and save. You will want to do this because the computer app automatically uses the name fields to provide possible research helps for you. When an alternate name is not in a name field, the computer does not find it. Also, one other note... I've seen records where people enter multiple names in one field. For example, they will enter "Louis or Lewis." That will most likely produce zero hits because the computer reads character by character but actually has no understanding. If you were wanting the computer to search for possible sources for "Louis" and possible sources for "Lewis," then you would want to enter the names in two separate name fields. You can enter as many "Alternate Names" as you want. : )
P.S. I'm new to Family Search, too. I hope you get this message. This is my first time to reply to a post.0

Tracey, did you already see Oregon, U.S., Compiled Census Index, 1841-1890, Lewis O. Baxter? Is that him in Deer Island Precinct, Columbia County, Oregon, in 1890? I can't see the image, and it doesn't list family but might be a clue??? Was he in the military? The database is OR 1890 Veterans Schedule, page 5.
