Preparation for the 1950 US Census ==> Part 3 - FamilySearch 2.0 - Follow Up

Are you ready for the release of the 1950 US Federal Census ? Watch for this graphic, on this Blog, and DearMYRTLE's Blog and Facebook Groups as we will use this for the DearMYRTLE's CensusGenie branding.
This  blog will also carry this branding on the blog posts related to the CensusGenie project.

As a follow up to my last Blog Post: 

Preparation for the 1950 US Census ==> Part 3 - FamilySearch 2.0

I thought I would post some statistic from the review of the FamilySearch Matching:

  • 721 Profiles in Database
  • 196 Direct Descendants of the Home Person
  • 108 Profiles of the Direct Descendants with FamilySearch Matches
  • 14 of those already are showing Historical Records from FamilySearch
One thing that I noticed in reviewing this database, is that there are a number of this filtered list that did not have records from the 1940 US Federal Census. I understand why this specific database is like that, so my next task will get those 1940 Census Records into my database. I checked my Ancestry Hint list for that record set and I have 60+ profiles with hints for the 1940 Census.

Future blog posts will demonstrate the Profile Reviews that I do, as well as information that I may need to locate.

I intend to provide links in the Blog to educational material that may be discussed in a Video.


1 - Preparation for the 1940 US Federal Census on this blog already, can be found in the "Census1940" Label. The 1950 CensusGenie series will use the "Census1950" Label on the Left Column of this blog, or search for "1940census" or "1950census".
