Did you find your family? Ways to request copies of the actual census sheets include:
1. Requests through the Missouri State Archives can be submitted by e-mail or by postal mail.
2. Check the Random Acts of Kindness Page at Rootsweb
3. Books We Own list - many volunteer to do lookups
4. The microfilms can also be ordered through your Local Family History Library or Public Library (via inter-library loan).
Note: 1840 census reports only list the head of household, and then indicate the number of people in the household by age and gender
Note: contains the name of each person in the household, age, occupation, and place of birth
