About the 1892 Census.
For New York:
The LDS Library can look it up the area that you are interested in on their computer. The film that I was looking at was for south Hempstead. The film # is 1976731; title Queens, New York State Census. I believe the other one is 1976730 for North Hempstead or Oyster Bay...? You have to order it and leave them a deposit. It takes about 2-3 weeks to arrive but then they hold it for you for about one month. Be sure to bring the district #'s that I posted here because it will be a great help in finding the location that you're interested in.

On this film there are only names, occupation, & age...there are no relationships, etc. that you would find on other census records.
Most people don't find this census very valuable but I think it's according to your individual needs.
I never could find my ggrandparents marriage date anywhere. This census gave me a clue. We always thought that my grandfather was an only child until I read the 1892 census; I found 2 girls, ages 5 & 3 yrs. old. As there is 'no relationship' column; I guessed that these were other children of my ggrandparents. I then subtracted the date of the 5 yr. old + 9 mos. and then went to the 1886 newspaper to find a marriage notice for my ggrandparents!

Remember, half the fun is in the search.
