Ancestry.com makes tracing your ancestors easier
Ancestry.com, the world's largest online family history source, has announced it has completed digitizing and indexing the entire U.S. Federal Census from 1790 to 1930. It is the most comprehensive genealogical database ever compiled online with more than 5 billion searchable names. It is the only source where all publicly released census information can be found online.
The U.S Census on Ancestry.com provides a wide range of "snapshots" into the lives and lifestyles of ancestors. At the touch of a button a subscriber can access an individual's record, revealing occupation, age, race, marital status, relationship to head of household, place of birth, parents' place of birth, assets, native language, neighbors and street address.
With an estimated 73% of the U.S. population actively researching or interested in family history, genealogy is one of the largest and fastest growing online industries today.
Ancestry.com makes family history research easier by providing customers a variety of resources which help bring the complete census collection to life through a vast range of archives including photographs; birth, marriage and death records; military records; immigration records; newspapers and periodicals and personal narratives. One of the examples shown on the website is that of the Welsh, Parry family.
