DC Thomson Family History broke into the US genealogy market with the ground-breaking censusrecords.com. It is the only site dedicated to the US census and was the first US site to have a pay-as-you-go option.
The site lets customers search all US census records from 1790 to 1930. It will also house the 1940 US census records once it is completely indexed.
Every visitor to censusrecords.com is able to search for free. Customers that want to view documents, and download them to their computer, have two payment options. They can either buy a conventional subscription or purchase pay-as-you-go credits, starting at $7.95. Pay-as-you-go customers are able to buy further credits at any time, giving them the freedom to spend as much or as little time and money on their research as they want.
The focus of the site being on the US’s most important record set, in conjunction with the pay-as-you-go option, make it perfect for the beginner as well as more experienced genealogist.
DC Thomson Family History recognizes the need to simplify what can be a complex process for those just getting started in family history. While censusrecords.com provides advanced search and enhanced indexes to core data for those already addicted to family history, it also provides a key starting place for the curious.
