My Buffalo Project is up and running here. Not everything is complete, but it is in progress. You are more than welcome to explore these pages and use this data in your own non-published family genealogy, but please credit this as the source, and not the census. I may be contacted by temporary eMail also.
I have transcribed over 20,000 names from the census for Buffalo, New York who are of Polish heritage, and am in the process of making them available. The current focus of this project is more of a historical/sociological perspective, namely, what comprised Buffalo's "Polonia" - land area and people, the composition of these people in ages and immigrant status, number of population in Buffalo in 1920, etc. It is only secondarily a genealogical project, in that it can and should be used as a finding aid for those whose heritage in that place and time is of Polish ancestry. The surname lists are available for genealogists to use to find information on their Buffalo ancestors without having to initially go to the soundex for each individual surname.
The main criteria for this project is to include those people whose 1) birthplace or parent's birthplace is Poland, Galicia, or Posen, 2) native language is Polish, or 3) has a Polish surname. Others not meeting this criteria may be included if they meet my secondary criteria.
Not all people in the e.d.'s meet the criteria and therefore are not included. If you do not find someone on my pages who lived in that district it is because either they were not enumerated there or were culled from my list.Update - 26 June 2001
