Subscription genealogy site WorldVitalRecords.com announced a partnership to provide its US Collection subscribers with access to historical records site Footnote’s indexes to the 1860 and 1930 US censuses.
WorldVitalRecords.com members can search the two censuses on WorldVitalRecords.com and see a transcription of basic information from matching records.
To view the digitized census returns, they’ll need to subscribe to Footnote. Or, of course, they can access census records in HeritageQuest Online or Ancestry Library Edition through a library; visit a Family History Center to use Footnote there for free; search subscription site Ancestry.com; or use census microfilm at a library, Family History Center or National Archives facility.
Footnote’s 1860 census index also is part of the FamilySearch Record Search Pilot.
A subscription to the World Vital Records US Collection costs $39.95 for a year. A subscription to Footnote costs $79.95 a year.
