+
A census can provide you with names and ages of family members, which you can use to calculate birth or marriage dates. It can provide the county where your ancestor lived, people living with or gone from the family, and relatives that may have lived nearby. The census may identify persons for whom other records do not exist. <br>

The record is a printed form that was filled in by hand by the enumerator. The schedules are usually arranged by county and political subdivisions.&nbsp;
Colonial censuses were created by the state of New York and were taken about every ten years beginning in 1690. State censuses began to be taken about every ten years in 1795.&nbsp;This census does not cover the entire population of the state of New York. Some of the modern-day counties did not exist in New York State in 1892. New York City organized its five boroughs six years later in 1898. New York created Nassau County that same year.&nbsp;

Collection Time Period

New York state censuses were created approximately every decade beginning with 1825. This official date of enumeration for this census is Feb. 16, 1892.

How to Use the Records

A census can provide you with names and ages of family members, which you can use to calculate birth or marriage dates. It can provide the county where your ancestor lived, people living with or gone from the family, and relatives that may have lived nearby. The census may identify persons for whom other records do not exist.

Record Description

The record is a printed form that was filled in by hand by the enumerator. The schedules are usually arranged by county and political subdivisions. 

Record Content

New York 1892 Census DGS 004370008 00299.jpg

Key genealogical facts found in the 1892 New York State Census are:

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Color
  • Country of birth
  • If citizen or alien
  • Occupation

This census does not cover the entire population of the state of New York. Some of the modern-day counties did not exist in New York State in 1892. New York City organized its five boroughs six years later in 1898. New York created Nassau County that same year.

Record History

Colonial censuses were created by the state of New York and were taken about every ten years beginning in 1690. State censuses began to be taken about every ten years in 1795. This census does not cover the entire population of the state of New York. Some of the modern-day counties did not exist in New York State in 1892. New York City organized its five boroughs six years later in 1898. New York created Nassau County that same year. 

Why This Record Was Created

The census was compiled to obtain a count and description of the population of the state of New York. 

Record Reliability

The information is generally reliable. However use the information with some caution, since the information may have been given to a census taker by any member of the family or by a neighbor. Some information may have been incorrect or deliberately falsified.
