FREE Access to the Census at Ancestry.com through 3 September 2012



If you have been delaying searching the census records for your ancestors, you might want to take advantage of a couple of days of FREE access to a variety of census records at Ancestry.com!

Available for FREE through Labor Day (Monday, 3 September 2012) are these 25 databases:

  • 1790-1940 United States Federal Census collections
  • 1850 U.S. Federal Census – Slave Schedules
  • 1860 U.S. Federal Census – Slave Schedules
  • 1890 Veterans Schedules
  • Non-Population Schedules 1850-1880
  • U.S. Enumeration District Maps and Descriptions, 1940
  • U.S. Federal Census – 1880 Schedules of Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes
  • U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885
  • U.S. IRS Tax Assessment Lists, 1862-1918
  • U.S., Indian Census Rolls, 1885-1940

Additionally, part of Ancestry’s celebration of the recent availability of the 1940 census, includes what they are calling The Ancestry.com Time Machine. An interactive experience that allows one to see what a typical day would be like back in 1940. You can customize the experience by inputting a few of your interests, and it will create a video of what you may have experienced back in 1940. You can then share that video with your friends and family..
