Family History Roundtable Series
Genealogists regularly use the Federal Census because they often provide essential genealogical information on individuals such as age, birthplace, occupation, residence, etc. Unfortunately, the New York State censuses, which usually were also taken every ten years between the Federal Census years, often get overlooked by researchers. At this meeting we will explore the New York censuses, discuss what information can be found in them, what years are available, and how to get access to each census. We will also demonstrate how you can locate people in the New York censuses that do not have name indexes. This is an opportunity to become more familiar with what could be a very important resource for many researchers.
