Census Records Research

Posted on: July 20th, 2008

My census information is the accumulation of efforts from 1995 – 2008.  You will see among my pages and posts many references to census documents.  I have tried to keep copies of pages for my direct ancestors, but have simply copied the information down for many of the associated lines.  I have gotten these copies from several New York Libraries including the Main Branch of the NYPL, the Schomburg Center for Black Research in Harlem, and the NARA library in NYC.  I have also found records online at  Ancestry.com, USGenWeb sites, and Heritage Quest. Census Online and Census Finder are both good sources for finding census records online.
