1950 U.S. Census is HERE

Woot! 🥳

From the National Archives website:

“On April 1, 2022, the 1950 Census was released, and users can access it for free through a dedicated website at 1950census.archives.gov. This population census is the 17th decennial census of the United States. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has digitized and is providing free online access to the 1950 Census population schedules for U.S. states and territories, enumeration district maps, and enumeration district descriptions.”

From FamilySearch:

The 1950 census images have been released!

“We received a copy from the National Archives and have kicked off a 2-step process to make it easy for you to find your own family in the census: First, to make the images browseable, and second, to work with Ancestry® to launch the community project. Sign up to receive notifications when we complete each step.”

It only took 72 years for this information to be released. Enjoy the journey in finding your ancestors in 1950 and discovering what they were doing, who they were living with. It is very possible that a brick wall or two may be broken through with the accessibility of this record.

Happy searching!
