You're correct that the SOURCE is important, but I think the source that
should be cited for
census lookups is the Roll No., township, county, page, enumeration district
-- not if
the information was obtained from ancestry, heritage quest, genealogy.com,
census CD's or a trip to the local NARA.
I'm familiar with the IGI and familysearch.org, but not with the others
you mention. It looks like they are FREE resources, but
I think we're referring to online resources that are accessed by a paid
subscription and they
have an Acceptable Use Policy that we must agree to when we subscribe.

Hmmm, I couldn't "live" without sources posted..Each source has it's
strengths and weaknesses, the IIGI vs Tanguay, vs PRDH, vs Virkus, vs Barber
collection, vs...1880 census online at Familysearch.org..Evaluating data is
mainly done by evaluating sources...see for a list of some of the source
codes we use...:
