Date: Thu, 8 Nov 2001 08:25:50 -0600

Hi Everyone,

For the first time, all available images of the entire United
States federal census for the census years from 1790 to 1920
are on the Web, exclusively at Ancestry.com. The collection includes
more than 425 million names on 10 million images.

This completes the posting of images with the exception of some
illegible scans, which represent only a fraction of a percent of
the individual enumerations. These pages are currently being re-
scanned for quality and will be posted as they become available.

The 1790-1830 censuses have searchable indexes and are
browsable. The 1840-1880 and 1900-1920 censuses are currently
browsable with head of household indexes for them currently in

Also available is the one-of-a-kind 1890 federal census
substitute. Fragments of this census that survived the 1921 fire
are online with additional state and city directories to provide
you with the best coverage available for this time period.
More information about the 1890 federal census substitute is at:

The Census Images Online collection is invaluable for family
historians who are researching their American roots. It
enables Ancestry.com subscribers to view original census images
from the comfort of home -- easily and effectively.

please let me know. :-) Thanks, Mike
