New York State conducted 10 State censuses between 1825-1925. Some of the questions asked for the State censuses provide details prior to the beginning of civil registrations and decades before a similar question was asked on the Federal censuses. If you have New York State genealogy research to do, this is a record collection that you’ll want to familiarize yourself with! Disclaimer: Please do not hold the speaker responsible for the records lost (including the State censuses) in the Capitol fire of 1911. She promises to help show you in this presentation where you can locate remaining local copies of the censuses and hopes that the ones you are looking for have survived. Presented by Jeanette Sheliga.
