One thing Ancestry.com did was arrange for the NY census surnames to be done
figuring that so many genners have families arriving/living in NY. and it's free,
none of this two-week trial. Not only that but you can access an 1892 census which
is a great fill-in for the 1890 census lost in a fire.
On the right-hand side of the screen is a free offer to access other NY goodies.
Using the 1892 census I delightedly found what I believe is my mgf David Goldberg
along with a bunch of siblings whose names I never knew let alone their existence.
Enough data matches that will prompt me to delve further. I have no business or
financial connection with Ancestry.com.
