USGenWeb Free Census Project Help, Where to get Census Records for Transcription - Free & Inexpensive Sources


United States Online Census Images

The record of the population census from 1790 to 1930. Scanned from microfilm from the collections of the Allen County Public Library and originally from the United States National Archives Record Administration.


For most people, this is one of the most inexpensive routes to go. Most LDS Family History Centers have a selection of microfilms in stock, and almost any other film you might need is available from Salt Lake City. The cost for films borrowed from Salt Lake City is usually around $3 for a month's use (in the FHC). There is no charge for in-stock films. Check your local phone book under "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" for your local Family History Center.


These sources are usually free or very inexpensive. Chances are their selection is limited in locale, but it is certainly worth checking in to. Public Libraries are often able to get films through inter-library loans for little or no cost.
