Census Search

Why does your people search lead to Ancestry.com and Genology.com where I have to pay another family tree company to access free public census records? Don't you have a feature that provides access to census detail records within your search capabilities? Is it in your preimum edition?  If not, why wouldn't I just go direct to Ancestry.com or Genology.com to start with?  Yes. I'm new and really like your site but I don't want to upgrade and continue on if I have to pay other sites for basic access to information like census records.

Thanks,   RG

Hi RG,

 

You can research your family history using the following methods:

1. Use our specialized genealogy search engine MyHeritage.com Research, found here:http://www.myheritage.com/research. It utilizes a unique approach: each search that you run there, will be applied on 1,500 different genealogy databases and websites (including MyHeritage.com) and you will receive consolidated results. Each search takes time but will save you months of manual searches.

Some of these databases do not belong to us, and if these companies charge money for the information, we can't control it.

We provide you with an automatic search engine, that looks in all these sites for information about your whole tree, automatically.  

 

 

2. Use the MyHeritage.com Smart Matches feature. This unique feature compares your family tree to the millions of other family trees on MyHeritage.com and discovers family trees that match (overlap) your tree. This is found in the Family Tree > Smart Matches page of your family site, or in the Family Tree Builder software. If you are using Family Tree Builder, be sure to publish your family tree first as this increases the quality and quantity of your Smart Matches.

3. Use the Smart Research feature in Family Tree Builder (Premium feature). It will research your entire family tree automatically in more than 100 of the world's best genealogy websites and databases. 4. Submit a question to other genealogists on our genealogy forums, here:http://www.myheritage.com/genealogy-forums Good luck with your research!

Regards

I agree that your search engine is great but it only takes me to sites that have minimal details and want me to join their pay sites to get full information. It's almost like your site is the tease to get us to pay for other site information. As I said, I really like your site but it falls short in this area. End result then is you have no access to the census rolls through your site?  Only access to other genology sites that have access to the census rolls?  Correct?

Thanks  RG

I know that this post is ancient but if you are still interested, familysearch,org, the Mormon site, is utilizing volunteers who are transcribing census records so you don't have to pay to get them over the internet. They already have some done. I think mainly the U.S, English, and Canadian Censuses from around 1880.

We do not own any Census rolls, but we do direct you other sites which contain relevant information, according to your tree. 

Some of these sites are free, and some are not.

The Smart Matches and Smart Research feature include all the data in MyHeritage -

so you do benefit from information in our databases.

Noam.
