LDS Census and Soundex Microfilms of Albany County, NY

Compiled by Joan Gaffney    Jan 2002

Webpage and Introduction by Cliff Lamere    Feb 2002

 

The microfilms listed here are available from the Latter Day Saints at their Family History Centers.  Census years which end in 0 were conducted by the federal government.  The others were conducted by New York State.  The information listed for the censuses conducted by the State of New York does not tell what is on each microfilm, so you will have some inconvenience trying to find out which microfilm(s) to order.  Some of the federal censuses are listed twice, in two different sets which sometimes seem to be unlike each other.

My comments are in square brackets [  ].  

Some Soundex indexes are included here.  To go directly there, click on one of the following links.
