Question/Topic: I am interested in buying the old census records for Pike Co. Ky. and also has the 1930 census been released yet. Can you let me know what is for sell. 
Answer/Pointer: I believe you can purchase the census records from the National Archives and Records Administration. Please refer to the following web site for available catalogs of their microfilm publications, including census records: On this page, either click on "Census Catalogs" or scroll down the page until you see the catalogs listed. Also, on this page, if you click on "Ordering Information" on the gray bar on the left, you will find information about payments, delivery schedule, etc. The 1930 census records have not been released yet. It is my understanding that the Census Bureau must wait 72 years before releasing the names data. Therefore, the 1930 records should be available around 2002 or 2003. We at the State Library of Florida don't have anything for sale. However, please refer to the other links on the National Archives web site for other publications catalogs. Also, please refer to the following web site at the Census Bureau for publications that they offer: Also, please refer to the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives web site at This part of their web site explains their archival research policy. The following web site details their census holdings In case you have more specific questions about Kentucky, one of Kentucky's representatives in the Census Bureau's State Data Center program is Ms. Brenda Fuller, State Library Division, Department for Libraries & Archives, 300 Coffeetree Road, P.O. Box 537, Frankfort, KY 40601 (502) 564-8300, ext. 334,
