New York Census Research

Microfilms of the federal censuses for New York, 1790–1910, and corresponding book and microfilm indexes are available in several places throughout the state and country. Many libraries with genealogical collections have films of most or all the censuses for their particular county and often for surrounding counties.

Two enumerations were taken in New York City in 1870. Parts of the enumerations for the towns of Eastchester (Westchester County) and Brookhaven (Suffolk County) are among the few surviving schedules of the 1890 federal census. A Manhattan 1890 police census, available at the , also fills part of the void of the destroyed federal census. Damaged and missing censuses include the following:

  • 1810: Cortland and part of Broome County—missing
  • 1860: Chenango and Columbia counties—damaged
  • 1880: Suffolk County and New York City Wards 21 and 22—damaged

Of almost greater value in New York than the federal are the state censuses, taken every ten years from 1825 to 1875, in 1892, and again in 1905, 1915, and 1925 (pre-1825 state censuses and state copies of those for 1855–1905 were destroyed in the 1911 state library fire). Most of these censuses that have survived can be found with the county clerk, although some are with the county historian or in other locations.
