OGR should be able to. http://www.gdal.org/drv_tiger.html

Keep in mind the 1992 files in particular are very poor quality (which, BTW, shouldn’t be taken as the census doing a poor job, but rather that high-accuracy was not a design criteria for that era. The point was to be good enough for census takers, not for navigation or high accuracy maps).
