In 1890 there were a number of census schedules:

Only a small fragment of the 1890 general population census and an incomplete set of special schedules enumerating Union veterans and widows are available today as most of the 1890 census was destroyed by a fire .

The 1890 veterans census is sometimes used as a census substitute for the 1890 regular population census. The veterans schedules are a head of household list for those who served in the Union military during the Civil War. The 1890 Veterans schedule was meant to only record Union veterans, but, in a few small instances, Confederate veterans were also recorded.

In addition to being a 1890 census substitute, veterans schedules can be used to verify military service and to identify the specific military regiment in which a person served. This information can be used to search for the veterans military pension records .
