1855 New York Census
Date Last Updated: 06/05/2009
The1855 New York Census is important to researchers because it contains a valuable clue for finding someone's birthplace. Along with standard census data such as the age and birth county for each member of the household, it also lists how long each person has lived in the town. While all census data has some potential for error, this may be the only official source record of births for the early 1800's since town clerks (in New York) were not required to keep vital records data until the late 1800's.
One can be fairly certain that if the family was in town for the census years spanning the individual's age there is a high degree of probability that the town is the birthplace. As with all sources, the more cross-references the better... The information utilized for this transcription is from the copy available at the Warren County Records Center.
