Censuses for Marathon County, WI

The material presented on these pages is always FREE because of the efforts of myself and other volunteers.



Censuses were taken by the state of Wisconsin from 1836 when it was a territory, until 1905. The 1836, 1838, 1842, 1846, 1847, 1855, 1875, 1885, 1895 and th surviving fragments of the 1865 censuses resemble the early federal censuses, listing only the head of a household by name and summarizing the number of others. The 1905 census was the only state census in Wisconsin to list all the members of a household by name.

You should be able to request a census through a Family History Center, or by interlibrary loan from your local library.
