Census Collection Free on Footnote.com through April

This note came from Justin Schroepfer, marketing director at Footnote.com:

I wanted to update you that we have decided to extend our Interactive Census Collection free to the public through the end of April.  Since opening this collection a few weeks ago, we have received a very positive response.  In order to view the images from the collection, visitors only need to register for free.

Go to www.footnote.com/census/.

Footnote.com has the “interactive” census images; that is, users may annotate or comment the census iamges. The 1860 and the 1930 censuses are 100% complete, while others are in various stages of completion on Footnote.

I found the notorious outlaw Bonnie Parker on the 1930 census, living under another name.  If you want to know where and by what name she was then known, go to Footnote.com find my annotation on the 1930 census.

  • Hi, Craig.

    You have been awarded the Ancestor Approved award for your great work on your genealogy blog! Please stop by my blog and pick up the award (by right clicking on it and saving it to a .jpg, or just drag it onto the desktop if you’re on a Mac) and then post the below information with the picture, using the format I used when receiving it.

    The Ancestor Approved Award asks that the recipient list ten things you have learned about any of your ancestors that has surprised, humbled, or enlightened you and pass the award along to ten other bloggers who you feel are doing their ancestors proud. Here are the 10 things I have learned from my ancestors.
