From August 29th through September 3rd, Ancestry.com is opening all of its U.S. census records – FREE. You can start your free census search at www.ancestry.com/census.
Learn about your family’s true story in the census records and see what your own life could have been like as an adult in 1940 with the Ancestry.com Time Machine. Ancestry has an interactive, time-travel experience requires just a handful of information provided by you. In return, you get a custom video featuring YOU in 1940. While it’s not genealogy, it is high-tech fun. Create your own video and share it with your followers. And encourage them to create their own at www.ancestry.com/TimeMachine.
Another Ancestry tool is the free guide Follow Your Family Using Census Records available at Census Guide.
