Early School Census Records

These census records, for the territorial years and right after statehood, were obtained by visiting each house and recording all children 21 and under in the home plus the parent or guardian.

The school census are on three microfilms at the Arizona State Archives. Many of the original records were damaged and/or in poor condition at the time of filming; pages torn, with holes; faded, written in pencil; pages not numbered consistently and some seemed to be missing. There are 89 districts listed in the Archives inventory (a red, three-ring binder) showing about 20 districts still in existence. Records are filed chronologically and gives name of district. The film numbers are #90.2.1 (District #1 - 13), 90.2.2 (District #14 - 41), 90.2.3 (District #42 - 75). (For Districts #76 - 89, the Archives has no film.) The years vary and are not consistent, but basically the range is between 1909 - 1915. The number of pages per district varies many have as little as 3 or 4 pages and a few have close to 75 or more. It is strongly advised that you check the film or the original records, not only for additional data, but also to check names for readability. 

There are five accommodation schools: Bar-O-Ranch, Guadalupe, Fort Huachuca (District #74), Happy Valley, and Pine Canyon. The Archives has no film for these districts.
