So we are one day away from the end of the free census records on Ancestry.com. I started with 488, and so far have gotten through the C's in my list. I have added about 20 new names to this database which need to be further vetted out, but are good starting points.
I have also added more "residence" locations for a good portion of my 488. On my last post I talked about how to verify if I had a user in a census year, and once again thanks to Russ I was able to add Residence into my report.
I have not used it to remove people who are fully census done, but at least at quick look I can see if I am missing anybody in a given census year which is a great help.
I hope to get at least my main lines of my families done before the end of the free period and then work my way outwards.
If I had to take an estimate I would say I am at about 420 names left, does not sound like I did a lot but over all I think it is good progress.
