Have you ever wanted to contribute your efforts to help out with "Our Adair Site", but don't have the time or the access to transcribe a whole group of public records?  Well, now here's your chance to contribute!  This forum is based upon submissions made by Adair County researchers, like you, who would like to make the information in the records that you have personally looked up and recorded available to other researching the same people.  Just think of all of the time and money that could be saved if every genealogist would post the information they have gathered on a public site like this one.  In no time at all, we would have most of the censuses transcribed ONLINE!
So, if you have ADAIR COUNTY public records that you have PERSONALLY researched  (i.e. submissions of scanned data from published sources CANNOT be accepted.  Data from the ACTUAL records themselves are FREE from copy right and CAN  be submitted for inclusion in the forums below.  Just download the file that is applicable to the data you are submitting).  or just E-mail the info to Claudia.  Please use the sample of information which includes valuable information listed below each record type.  If that information is not listed on the record, please indicate Adair County in your email subject.  Copied data from the ACTUAL records themselves are FREE from copyright and CAN be submitted for inclusion in the this forum.

If you have a photocopy of a page of census records (such as a microfilm copy), please feel free to submit each name, instead of just the name of your ancestor. Our database will grow more quickly this way!

The Growth of the County.  Chapter III,  pages from Violette's History - provided for us by Michele Cragg

     From the beginning the county has enjoyed in a steady and substantial growth.  This is exhibited in a variety of ways.  The first index of growth that one usually consults is the U. S. census reports on the population.  On turning to them we find nothing on the population of Adair County prior to 1850, as the county was organized in 1841, the year after the census of 1840 was taken.  Inasmuch as no separate record was kept of the population of the territory that was attached to Macon County from 1837 to 1841, and out of which the present Adair County was formed, we have no means of knowing just what the population of the county was when it was created in 1841.  The census reports since 1850 give the population of Adair County as follows:

1850 ..........  2,342
1860 ..........  8,531
1870 .......... 11,448
1880 .......... 15,190
1890 .......... 17,417
1900 .......... 21,728
1910 .......... 22,700
