The link for the 1890 Partial index of New York Census does not work.&nbsp; 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&nbsp;outstanding.

The On-line Federal Non-Population Schedules for New York, headings: 1850 Mortality Family Search Link and 1890 Veterans Family Search Images do not work.&nbsp; Would it be possible for you to fix the links?
  
'''1791-1930''' The National Archives and its regional centers, the Family History Library, the New York Public Library, and the New York State Library have microfilm copies of the U.S. federal censuses of New York for 1790, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930. The original county copies of the federal censuses, 1850–1880, are normally at the county clerk's offices. These copies are more accurate than the federal copies. The Family History Library has county copies on microfilm.

We appreciate your efforts,

To find a location of a house you must use the Ancestry.com index, or use a city directory to find an ancestor's address. Then you can: 1. Look at the Wilson Street Directory (on FHL Film 1304784) -- 2. Find the city blocks your address is between -- 3. Locate the street and block number on the A.D. maps (on FHL Film 1304784) -- 4. Using the block number, find the E.D. number -- 5. Find the book number for the E.D. -- 6. Locate the film number for the book. See New York (New York), Police Department, ''Police Census, 1890'' (Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1981)[[{{policecen}}]]. The census lists the name, address, sex, and age of each person.</ref>
 
*'''1870 New York County 2nd enumeration'''<ref>Census takers enumerated Manhattan (New York County) twice in 1870 and both versions are microfilmed. The second enumeration, taken in December, is not indexed but includes street addresses, which make it easier to find your ancestor. In addition, the National Archives microfilmed all of the 1870 federal census schedules twice. As a result, there are four sets of microfilms for the Manhattan 1870 federal census.</ref>

'''How to Find State Census Records'''
 
 
 
Microfilm copies of all surviving New York state censuses are at the [http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/genealogy/nyscens.htm State Library]. Manuscript copies for 1915 and 1925 are at the state archives. The staff will not search these unindexed records for you. All state censuses are available on microfilm at the Family History Library.
 
 
 
'''Street Indexes''' The Family History Library has street indexes for the 1905, 1915, and 1925 Manhattan censuses (Family History Library 36 films). The library also has a manuscript street index to the 1915 Brooklyn census, 1915 Queens census, and 1925 Queens census. 1925 census maps showing assembly and election district boundaries are available on microfiche for New York City (fiche 6088624), Buffalo (fiche 6088619), Rochester (fiche 6088627), and some other cities.

=== Why use a census?  ===
 
 
 
A well-indexed census is one of the easiest ways to locate where an ancestor's family lived and when they lived there. You can also use censuses to follow the changes in a family over time, and identify neighbors. These and other clues provided by censuses are important because they help find additional kinds of records about the family.

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.

The On-line Federal Non-Population Schedules for New York, headings: 1850 Mortality Family Search Link and 1890 Veterans Family Search Images do not work.  Would it be possible for you to fix the links?

We appreciate your efforts,
