FamilySearch Update - 1892 NY Census beginning to be indexed!!!

The following ennouncement made by FamilySearch is very, very, very exciting to me!  I can't wait to jump on and help index the 1892 NY census and can't wait even more for Buffalo to be put online.  I have searching it on my to-do list, but I always seem to come up with something else to research when I get to the library in Buffalo (about once every couple months).  This will make my life so much easier, as well as so many others.  Off work tomorrow, so indexing here I come...

There are many new, upcoming, and completed indexing projects to report in this update. There are 12 new projects (see Current Projects chart below). These include three Belgian and two Argentina projects. The New York 1892 State Census project will be of great interest to many people. FamilySearch could not do all of these great initiatives without the great time and effort contributed by so many terrific volunteers. Thank you for your continued support.
