NY State Census Records

Last week, Ancestry released the New York State Census records for 1892, 1915 and 1925. I had already looked through the 1892 on Family Search and have that document saved on my hard drive, but I was excited to add it to my online family tree, finally.

My hard to research, Irish, O’Connell line was in NY for many years and I was excited to be able to look at them through these newly available records. The most important thing I learned is that my great-great grandfather, John O’Connell told the census taker in 1925 that he was naturalized in Rutland, VT in 1874! I am excited to have another tidbit of his life and hope to be able to find the record.

Of course, with a name like John O’Connell it will probably take forever to flush him out!

Have you had any recent luck with new records online? Please share your stories!

      I hope to be able to figure out the name of the restaurant and see if it is still a restaurant, and maybe see if I can find anything on Ebay for it.
