1935 DAR Transcription of the 1852 California Census for Santa Clara County

Although California joined the United States in 1950, it missed the federal census. 1852 was the first census taken in the state. In 1935 as part of the WPA projects, the DAR transcribed the census. The original census was filmed in the 1970s but was already of poor quality and the original sheets were destroyed.

What follows here is a reproduction of the Santa Clara Co portion of the DAR transcription. The films for this transcription for the whole state can be found in our library. In addition, we have purchased a CD from the Southern California Genealogical Society that spent eight years comparing the DAR work and the films of the original census. This is also available in our library as is the film for Santa Clara Co census sheets.
