Bullitt County History

Bullitt County 1950 Census - E.D. #5

Images of the 1950 census pages are available on the official government website, and have been "read" via OCR software, making it possible to locate people within limits. While the software has done a pretty good job, some handwriting has created issues, making it difficult to always find the person you seek.

For this reason we have completed a limited transcription including the names and ages of the occupants on the pages for Bullitt County. Below you will find our efforts for Enumeration District 5.

This district includes that part south of State Highway 44 and north and west of Salt River, outside Shepherdsville town and excluding Fort Knox (part) [15-6], U.S. Navy Proving Grounds [15-7] and U.S.N. Ordnance Plant "F" [15-8] which are marked by circled S's on this map, and listed at the bottom of this page.

The images are available on the census page beginning here. If you find an error in our transcription below, please use the "Contact Us" link at the top of this page to share that information with us.
