Use the new Census Helper™ to identify who will likely be found in the 1950 census

Census-Helper-feature-753x423-blog-image-1

The hottest topic in genealogy right now: the 1950 U.S. census

The hottest new census tool: MyHeritage's Census Helper™

Combine the two and we're going to have fun in the new census, released on April 1, 2022.

The Census Helper™ scans your family tree (upload your GEDCOM if you don't yet have a tree at MyHeritage) and compiles a list of your relatives who are very likely to be found in the 1950 U.S. census. This enables you to focus your research: armed with the list it creates, you’ll know exactly which family members to search for in the newly released census records. You can export this list to use it anywhere.

I personally found it very easy to use and amazingly accurate.

Under the Research menu, I clicked on Census Helper. Waiting for me was a list of 1,133 individuals who are likely to be found in this census. It also showed that there are another 518 lower-confidence results that I could look at if I wanted to.

Helper1

In the upper right is a Download button where I can then open the list in a spreadsheet, like Excel, and manipulate the data any way I want.

Now I'm armed with a very useful report for my use in researching the new 1950 census.

Use it for any census year!

It gets even better. Click on the "1950 U.S. Census" heading and it pops up a list for every U.S. federal census. Fantastic!

Helper2

Reading MyHeritage's blog article about this, the Census Helper™ will soon support nationwide censuses in other countries found on MyHeritage, such as Canada, England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Denmark, Norway and more.

How to access

This tool is available immediately for all MyHeritage users. If you are not using MyHeritage yet, now’s a perfect time to sign up and upload your GEDCOM from Legacy and benefit from this useful tool, which will save you time and give direction to your research.

Trying out LiveStory - tech that makes your family photos speak

I'm trying out MyHeritage's newest technology called LiveStory. The tech allows you to create animated videos of your ancestors telling their life story, using just a still photo and some text.

At www.myheritage.com/livestory I uploaded the photo of my 4th great-grandfather, Asa Clark Brown, and typed a few paragraphs about his life - from HIS perspective. I added a couple of related illustrations and clicked the Create button.

Incredible! Although the technology's intent is to create a cool video, it did something for me that I didn't expect. After all of these years of researching his life, I actually started to write his biography for the first time. For me, that was meaningful and a starting point. I'm now excited to compile and analyze what else I know about him and add much more to this original video. Watch my first try below (about a minute):

I was impressed with how simple it was to use. Here's what the original photo looked like:

Brown  Asa

Wow!
