Re: Jewish relative in 1892 NY Census #general

Mark Jacobson

The 1892 New York State Census does not survive for the borough of
Manhattan, so you can't find someone living on the Lower East Side
or anywhere else in Manhattan (or the Bronx or Staten Island where
records also do not survive) in that particular Census. It does
survive for what was then the City of Brooklyn. All surviving 1892
census records are indexed with images at

I am trying to locate information >from the 1892 NY State Census.  My
grandfather, Joshua ROSETT arrived in 1891 and supposedly was staying
with family. ... Stories suggest that he stayed with "family" but
there were many "Rosett" families in NYC.  It seems likely that he
was in a Jewish-Russian or Jewish-Polish neighborhood. I hope that
someone could give me an idea what area this would have been at that
time ...
