1850 CENSUS OF WILKES-BARRE BOROUGH, LUZERNE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA

These are a partial Listing of Census from Luzerne County. They were donated by the generous people researching in Luzerne county for the Luzerne County Genweb Project. If you have something you would like to donate send it to Mary Ann Lubinsky

Some parts of this copy of the microfilm LDS # 0444762 are unreadable. Items that are difficult to read are followed by asterisks or question marks. The last two or three lines of some pages are too dark to read. In many cases the census recorder relied on phonetic spelling of names, especially the German. With this in mind, saying the names aloud as spelled may be helpful toward identifying the actual surname. I have not included the last four columns shown on the 1850 census chart. I shall be happy to answer, If I can, any questions about the copy.
