Census records

Niagara County has a wealth of census records available for research. Since its formation in 1808, the county has participated in all federal censuses, so every decennial census from 1810 to 1920 is available (except the 1890, which burned). A few supplements to the federal census are also available for Niagara County:

Aside from the usual federal census indexes, there is an 1880 index done specifically for Niagara County; it can be borrowed on microfilm through an LDS Family History Center. (In 2001, the LDS church also published a national index of the 1880 census on CD-ROM.)

In addition, the various New York state censuses are available for Niagara County: these were done in 1855, 1865, 1875, 1892, 1905, 1915, and 1925. All can be borrowed on microfilm through LDS Family History Centers; some can be found in well-stocked genealogical libraries. None, however, has been indexed.

At present, very few census transcriptions are online for Niagara County. Exceptions include:

A handful of census indexes have been made available for towns in Niagara County. These include:

For other partial (or fragmentary) census indexes between 1850 and 1875, see Niagara County, New York: Surname Census Index.
