Henderson, Nevada-based RootsPoint.com announced it’s now indexing the records to provide a searchable database and census images to both companies and individuals.
The census images are being added at www.rootspoint.com (I don’t see any there yet), and the indexed database will be updated as data entry is completed beginning this week.
You’ll be able to search basic fields for free, but you’ll need a subscription to run advanced searches. Subscriptions range from 24 hours in length to one year.
RootsPoint.com will license the indexed data, along with the images, to genealogy companies and other interested groups.
The press release claims RootsPoint “has a 15-year track record of delivering a high level of completion and accuracy across many different censuses with a detailed quality control process to make sure records that have faded or have poor legibility are not skipped or misrecorded.”
RootsPoint’s parent company is Intelligent Image Management Inc. (IIMI). “Indexes from other census work from RootsPoint.com have been independently tested and determined to have among the highest quality ratings in the industry with an accuracy of 99 percent.” says IIMI president Upal Rahman.
