"New York State Censuses & Substitutes" by William Dollarhide,


with foreword by Gordon L. Remington.  "An Annotated Bibliography of State Censuses, Census Substitutes, and Selected Name Lists in Print, on Microfilm, or Online; with County Maps, 1683-1915; and State Census Examples and Extraction Forms, 1825-1925." -  Heritage Creations – 2005.

If you are doing genealogical research in New York State during the period from the 1600's to the 1920's, (and who isn't?), then this book is an absolutely, hands down, positively, must have, reference!

New York State does not have that wonderful New England Vital Records program where most all births, deaths and marriages were recorded at the town level.  Most Vital Records here do not start until the 1880's and then there are many vital records lacking until about the time of World War I.

William Dollarhide has brought you the tools to make an end run when you are searching for those elusive Yorkers.  Most researchers have used the Federal Census that has been taken every ten years since 1790.  These are available on microfilm from the National Archives and they are all now on-line at subscription sites and many have very good indexes.  Some of you may not be aware that the Federal "copy" might be just that!  There were multiple versions of the same census prepared by the enumerator and this book will explain where you will be able to locate additional versions of some of the same census.  You will find differences.

This book is laid out in a very easy to understand method and I guarantee you that you will be filled with fabulous new ideas of things to check and perhaps make new discoveries in your family quest.  The "Substitutes" given in the book will give you ideas of things to look at that you might not otherwise think of.  Some of these are Colonial and Statewide Name Lists that may be found generally in published sources, Tax Lists, Land Records, Military Lists, Newspaper Indexes, Will Abstracts, City directories and on and on.

One of the strongest sections (IMHO) is regarding the New York "State" Censuses that were taken in 1825, 1835, 1845, 1855 (my personal favorite,) 1865 (contains Civil War data,) 1875, 1892, 1905, 1915, and 1925.  Not all of them survived, some are only available in parts, but when you are fortunate to locate those that cover your area of interest, you will be rewarded with many new facts and details that you would never be able to locate anywhere else.

Bill Dollarhide also gives you full citations on the items and where they may be seen or obtained.  Most of the items that have been microfilmed by LDS will have the full catalog number for ordering the film at any Family History Center at a Mormon Church near you.  He also gives websites and on-line information on how to obtain things that have been published on the web.

There is a very useful section of maps that will show county and border lines at various time periods.  You will also see examples of all of the various census forms which will show the questions asked by the enumerator, which was an ever changing thing.

There is no question in my mind that this is the most important reference tool for New York State research to have been published in 2005!
