If you would like to have the entire 1865 index for all of Cattaraugus County so that you can browse it on your computer, you can download it here. You can download it either as an HTML file, or as a MS Word Document. Both are available to download in compressed (zip) format, either as a ZIP file, or as a self-extracting .EXE file. Warning, after they are decompressed (unzipped), they are HUGE, over 9mb, and even on your hard drive they will take some time to open.

Some very nice XL spreadsheets to help you organize your census information. Not only forms to duplicate different census forms, but also "Census Trackers" which allow you to organize all the census information on a particular individual.
These sheets are what we used to call "Honorware", they are essentially free, you don't need to pay anything to download and use them. However, the author does asks for a purely voluntary donation of $10 (via Amazon.com's Honor System) if you are satisfied and use the spreadsheets.
