Transcription Projects: New Horizons Genealogy is in the process of transcribing the entire New York State Census and all known Colonial census records. If you are an independent transcriber looking for a place to publish your work, or have a website with your work already published and would like to link to us, email us with your link and short description or file of your transcribed data and we will publish it where we feel most appropriate.

Our Mission: To bring these groups of records together in one place making them more accessible to the researcher. By having a very nice, as complete as possible listing of records already been transcribed, will hopefully avoid unnecessary duplication of transcriptions and thus allowing for more records to be transcribed and published for researchers to use.

Note: Your work and copy write will always remain yours and we will always give you full credit for it. We will never copy your work, just add a link to it, unless you ask us to publish it on our site for you.


  • All work must be genealogy related and fit into one of our transcription categories.
  • All work should have genealogical value. What we mean by this is we want more than just a name. The more the information about a person, the higher the genealogical value.
  • No inappropriate material, we reserve the right to reject any material or link for any reason.
