Ancestry.com Upgrades 1920 Census Collection
Posted by Diane

Subscription site Ancestry.com has released an improved version of its 1920 US census collection, with clearer images and a re-keyed index.

The enhanced digital images were taken from microfilm master copies of the original census records. The new index contains 250,000 new names, as well as differences in existing names due to the arbitrated indexing process (two different people would index the records, with a third expert to resolve any differences in the two versions).

The new index also incorporates the new index incorporates about 20 million Ancestry.com user suggestions from for alternate names and corrections.

You can read more on the Ancestry.com blog.

When I saw the news, I hopped online to look for my Haddad ancestors, who've eluded me in the 1920 census. Alas, I didn't find them, but you can bet I'll try more searches later.

For help searching census records, see the May 2010 Family Tree Magazine print edition (which comes with a Census Research Toolkit CD), our Census Secrets CD and/or our Online Census Secrets webinar recording.

Hi, RE: 1920 census. have you encountered pages that show up on Heritage quest that aren't on Ancestry? i have this situation in my family. for Bastrop county, Texas. several whole pages are completely missing in the Ancestry.com collection. the names aren't indexed and you can't browse to the page. the specific instance is for Bastrop Co., Texas, ED #26, Sheet 16B. if you get to Sheet 16A on Ancestry and click next it it goes to Sheet 17A.

it's been this way since i joined several years ago and the new update didnt fix it. thanks
