The following is a transcription of index cards bearing Slaven(s), Slavin(s), and similar surnames in the 1880 Federal Census Soundex for Iowa. The listing contains the head of household, township and county of residence with city if listed, and the index number on the first line, and any additonal household members listed on the card on the second line. The format of the index number is volume-enumeration district-sheet-line. Index numbers do not correspond to a page number, but should help you locate the family fairly quickly in a listing or on microfilm.
Spelling is how the transcriber interpreted the card, and knowing how misspellings are common in census enumerations, take all spellings with a grain of salt.
