I am verifying family history with census records. The index for census records before 1850 on FamilySearch is great, but I can't access the images to get more information. I am trying to verify what other sources list online as well as a hand-me-down genealogy book.
My current sources are listed on James York's profile, but I didn't include any census data before 1840 until I can verify it.
Here is an online resource I was double checking: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=bruceyork&id=I58153&style=TABLE
Thanks in advance for any help.
(a) Most/all of the filmed population schedules from the U.S. federal census 1790-1930 (unindexed) were digitized by Internet Archive/Allen County (Indiana) Public Library. The digitized materials are online at Internet Archive.org. Generally, you can use the information from FamilySearch's index to navigate to the census page image.

Helpful tips for navigating the unindexed images found on the FamilySearch wiki, "Finding a person in the 1930 Census (Even without an index)."
(b) Heritage Quest, available via a local library online portal to many in the United States makes most, but not all U.S. federal census available online.
Too good not to add to the US Census category page. Thx!
