Tips from the Pros of Ancestry.com – Researching the US Census Online

The 24/7 Family History Circle has a great tip from the pros on reading the Census records on Ancestry.com that may save you some time and effort.

Most of us are slow to read everything on a computer monitor, so it was quite a while before I noticed three small words just above the results table of my searches in the English censuses, They are blue and underlined–All Census Results.

Obviously this is a link, and I discovered it leads to a table showing a list of the number of hits in any available census return matching the criteria I had specified.

I’ve spent a lot of time digging through online US Census records recently, and I sure wish I’d had this tip first.
