'''1790-1860--'''Statewide indexes in book form are available for censuses 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, and 1860. A statewide 1870 census index for Kings, New York (Manhattan and part of the Bronx), Queens, Richmond, and Suffolk counties is available in compact disc format (Family History Library compact disc number 9 part 287).
 
 
 
'''1870--'''The compact disc including the 1870 Manhattan (New York County) index is for the first enumeration.
 
 
 
'''1880, 1900, 1920--'''Microfilm soundex (phonetic) indexes exist for the 1880 (partial), 1900, and 1920 censuses.
 
 
 
County-wide indexes sometimes help locate names that have been overlooked in statewide indexes. Over a dozen county-wide indexes are listed in the Family History Library Catalog Place Search under NEW YORK, [COUNTY] - CENSUS.
 
 
 
When indexes are not available or omit a name, you can still search for the name in the census. In large cities it helps to first learn the person's address by searching the city directory for the same year as the census. Then look for that address on the original census schedules.

Editing Table Links?

With the advent of the new FS website, it seems that wikilinks to all FS-related URLs need to be updated.

How does one update links within tables in the current article? BrklynBridge 21:29, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

The link for the 1890 Partial index of New York Census does not work.  Would you please either fix the link or remove it. This has been used as a feature article once, but we would like to use it again since it is outstanding.

Thanks for your hard work.
