MyHeritage and the 1950 US Census

For RootsTech, MyHeritage announces a dedicated hub where visitors can learn about everything related to the 1950 census, prepare for its launch, and search the collection.

MyHeritage will start fully indexing the 1950 census records as soon as the images are released on 1 April. Once this project is complete, MyHeritage will be offering free access to the indexed 1950 census records.

Comment: With MyHeritage indexing this census, as well as the consortium of Ancestry and FamilySearch, we can look forward to a real test of present-day indexing capabilities — accuracy as well as timeliness.
