Known Issues

Question #1: Why are there records from the 1855 census found in this collection?
Answer #1: When these records were filmed, records from the 1855, 1865 and 1875 census were copied onto the same rolls of microfilm. All three New York State Census collections have records from other years occasionally mixed in.

Question #2: Some records seem to be missing from Clarkson in Monroe County. Can you tell me where to find them?
Answer #2: Page 1 of the Clarkson locality in Monroe County was inadvertently filmed and indexed at the end of Brighton E.D. 02 Monroe County. They are located on image 39 in that waypoint.

Question #3: I am looking for the town of Florence in Oneida County. Are these records available?
Answer #3: The towns alphabetically from Clark to Marcy in Oneida County are not available either online or by microfilm. The records appear to be missing.

Question #4: When I click on View Image I am directed to the wrong image. How can I view the correct image?
Answer #4: Note the page number listed on the record details page to see if it matches the page number on the image that comes up. If not, scroll forward or backward a few images until you find the correct page match.

Question #5: I am looking for pages in Warren County that seem to be missing. Can you tell me where to look for them?
Answer #5: The images for persons in Warren County have been separated incorrectly for the locality in some cases. For instance Images 24-27 located in the Warren > Johnsburg E.D. 02 browse point are pages 1-4 of the Luzerne locality. At the end of the Luzerne browse point, images 24-27 are pages 3-7 of Queensbury E. D. 01. If you can tell there are missing images or incorrect images at the end of a locality, you might want to check in other browse points to see if they were incorrectly placed.

Question #6: I am looking for the town of Saugerties in Ulster County. Are these records available?
Answer #6
: FamilySearch does not have records for towns with names starting with letters N-Z in Ulster County, either online or on microfilm. The original records for the State's pre-1915 census are kept at the county level and are not available at the New York State Library. You may wish to contact the county clerk's office to ascertain their availability and location if you would like to see if the records are available.
