Where is the 1880 Census?

William Dollarhide, writing in GenealogyBlog, answers this question. It appears that the 1880 census is unique in that the original documents were transferred from the National Archives to other repositories around the country after they were microfilmed.

The author gives a brief history of the fate of all of the census records up through the 1940 census, and then finishes by listing where the 1880 documents are located state by state.

This is a great read and can be found at:
