Van Buren Co., Michigan

              1870 All Name Census Index
With the organization of the Van Buren Regional Genealogical Society in 1987, several projects were initiated. One was the indexing of the 1870 Van Buren County census. This project was enthusiastically tackled by the membership.
A map showing the townships and their locations in Van Buren County has been included along with the list of abbreviations for each township.
This index is an every name index. At times the quality of the microfilm was very poor and the 1870 style of handwriting was almost illegible. So, we beg your tolerance for mistakes, if any.
A sincere thank you goes to the readers and recorders of the microfilm, to the indexers, to the typists and the proof readers. Without you this project would still be in the planning stage.
