Examples from the 1855 NY State Census
Town of Russia

Continuing our presention of items that show types of research resources, below are listings that Jo Dee Frasco took from original census microfilm ordered from a Family History Center. Previously posted on the Herkimer County Mailing list, they are reprinted with the permission of the contributor.

The 1855 census of New York State is available for some counties. A listing of State censuses that have survived is posted on the Otsego County NYGenWeb page.

"Once again I went to the history center to transcribe Schuyler, Herkimer County. The 1855 State census for Schuyler is so faded that I can't really make copies of it. The other towns are very clear (my luck).

I made some copies of the pages my lines were on. I hope these names offer some help to somebody out there. If anyone has information on ORMONDO ALLEN and AMANDA ALLEN WHEELER...please contact me."
