Findmypast adds new UK electoral registers and the 1950 US Census Image Browse
Nearly 125 million new records have been added into this existing record set, mostly from the year 2021. An ideal resource for discovering cousins and distant relations, the records can give names, estimated ages and addresses.
Entirely free to browse, this once-in-a-decade glimpse into US history could help researchers find relatives’ names, addresses, places of birth, occupations and more. It’s brand new to Findmypast this week, and could be used to trace pond-hopping UK relatives.
