Today Ancestry.com announced thst they now have the 1890 New York City
police census on line. The address is:
www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/inddbs/3519.htm
This is free only until 11/19/2000. It is also vastly incomplete,
according to Ancestry's description: "This census produced 1,008 books
and 13 percent more residents than the federal enumeration. Of those
1,008 books, only 894 are still available. This updated version of a
previously posted database is an index to nine additional books for a
total of twenty-six police census books (58-61, 953-966, 969, 971-972,
977, 980, 982-983, 990) and adds the names of more than 5,000 people."
