MyHeritage Census Helper™ Gets a Major Upgrade

The following is from the MyHeritage Blog:

Just before the release of the 1950 U.S. Census in April 2022, we released the Census Helper™, a tool that scans your family tree and compiles a list of your relatives who are very likely to be found in census records. In the initial release, the Census Helper™ calculated a list of family members to find in the newly released 1950 U.S. census records as well as all available U.S. census collections. Now, we have expanded the Census Helper™ to include census records from other countries, so people with roots in places outside the U.S. can take advantage of it as well — and we’ve added some handy interface improvements that we’ll expand on below.

Use the Census Helper™ now for free

The Census Helper™ is a powerful free tool that offers help with census research and enables you to focus your research. Armed with the list it creates, you’ll know exactly which family members to search for in census records. 

Genealogists were excited to jump-start their research ahead of the 1950 U.S. Census release: for example, Maureen Taylor, the “Photo Detective”, commented on how quickly it helped her. “This is very handy!” she wrote. “I hadn’t gotten around to making a list. The Census Helper™ did it in seconds.” 

With this current update, the Census Helper™ now supports nationwide censuses in the United States, Canada, England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Denmark, and Norway.
