Now available: 1855 New York Census online
Familysearch.org has now put the 1855 census records for New York State online. The database is searchable by name, and you can see the scanned records. It is helpful for tracking families between the 1850 and 1860 censuses, and has the added bonus that individuals recorded in the census have provided the county of their birth.
