Free census records at Footnote

from Family Tree Magazine

[quote]Footnote's Census Records: Free for a Limited Time
Posted by Diane Haddad

Historical records subscription site Footnote is making its US census records free for a limited time.

Footnote spokesperson Justin Schroepfer says there’s not yet a firm ending date, but the records will be free at least through the end of this month.
You’ll need to register as a free member to view the records.

Footnote is carrying out plans to host the complete US census back to 1790.

Here are the census records on the site so far:
- the complete 1860 census
- 5 percent of 1900
- 3 percent of 1910
- 3 percent of 1920
- 98 percent of 1930

It's so funny you mention that as I stumbled upon that last night. I like to see sites outside of Ancestry.com improving their collections.

I think for $29 a month (World Access) Ancestry is the best Bang for your Buck. A lot of people just don't have any idea what is available on ancestry(dot)com, especially those people who do not have English/Yankee/Canadian ancestry. As an example, they just threw up the ENTIRE Ontario marriage collection (original scans of the original documents) up to 1930!

My favorite collection is the complete Quebec parish registers, scans of the original records 1620s to the 1940s!!

And the way they are filming The Stato Civile Records from the North of Italy is astounding to me..

This is not the Ancestry of 10 years ago... IMO it delivers tenfold to it's customers.

:D

Oh, for sure! Ancestry.com has helped me find more records than any other site. I wasn't saying anything against Ancestry.com at all. I was just saying the more sites that improve their records, the better.

The Ontario marriages just went up last week.. and they are amazing. All original scans! They just keep adding original Primary source image materials, last month was Complete Vermont Birth, Marriage and Deaths original records from 1908 to 2008!! They are revolutionizing online research, at a minimal cost considering what they provide. Gone are the days of waiting a month for the mail or driving two hours to an archive. The new generation of genealogical researcher is not going to have any idea what we used to have to go through back in the day.

Anyone here who does not subscribe to Ancestry, I would be more than happy to do lookups and get you an image or two if you need it. Just send me off a message.

Yeah, I'm really excited about that. I have a lot of German, Irish, and Italian ancestors who were naturalized in PA, so that would be really great. It really is amazing what Ancestry.com is making available online.
