 New York, folkräkning för delstaten, 1892

Folkräkningar genomfördes i delstaten New York vart tionde år mellan 1825 och 1875, samt 1892 och därefter igen mellan 1905 och 1925. Den här databasen innehåller ett register över 1892 års folkräkning för delstaten New York.

In New York state censuses were taken every ten years from 1825-1875, in 1892, and then again from 1905-1925. This database is an index to the 1892 New York state census. It should be noted that the 1892 NY State Census original copies were held by the individual county’s courthouse. Several of the counties did not keep copies of the original records and are therefore not included in this database. There are no known copies of the following counties:

  • Bronx (part of New York & Westchester Counties in 1892)
  • Chenango
  • Columbia
  • Franklin
  • Fulton
  • Jefferson
  • Livingston
  • New York
  • Oneida
  • Orange
  • Putnam
  • Rensselaer
  • Richmond
  • St. Lawrence
  • Schuyler
  • Seneca
  • Suffolk
  • Sullivan
  • Ulster
  • Westchester
  • Wyoming

Since the 1890 Federal Census was damaged and destroyed by fire in 1921, the 1892 census is especially important as it is able to provide information that would otherwise be obtainable from the 1890 Federal Census. Information available in this index includes:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Birthplace
  • Enumeration place (town and county)
  • Relationship to head of household (only listed in 1905)

Additional information, such as an occupation, may be listed on the actual census and can be found by viewing the accompanying image.

About state census records in general:

State censuses were often taken in years between the federal censuses. In some places, local censuses were designed to collect specific data, such as the financial strengths and needs of communities; tallies of school-age children and potential school populations to predict needs for teachers and facilities; censuses of military strength, cavalry horse resources, and grain storage; enumeration for revenue assessment and urban planning; and lists to monitor African Americans moving into the northern cities.
