MyHeritage Adds U.S. Census Records
Provo, Utah-based online genealogy and family history site MyHeritage has expanded out its library of family history records, saying this morning that it now has the entire, U.S. Census from 1790 to 1930 included in its database. MyHeritage said it has connected those records through its family trees on the site, to automatically find and record matching records for its users. MyHeritage said the new census records will show up on its sites WorldVitalRecords, FamilyLink, and Geni. MyHeritage has been looking to bolster the historical records it has on its site, as it competes against another local, family history provider--Ancestry.com--in expanding out its breadth of services.
