1950 United States Federal Census
Perhaps like me, you can’t get that excited about this new US census release. I only have one fairly distant line that I know of that would be in the US at the time. The name is quite common, I can wait until the census is fully indexed.
On release by the US National Archives and Records Administration on 1 April there were images of the original records and a name-only index compiled by handwriting recognition — much better than nothing.
Ancestry, in partnership with FamilySearch is working on more complete transcriptions to facilitate searches. As I write Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Oregon are completed. Images of the complete census are available free.
MyHeritage is also producing transcriptions with all records from Delaware, Vermont, Wyoming and American Samoa available. Images of the complete census are available free.
