I want to talk about a genealogy method I often use for searching census images online. Ancestry.com is usually the first place people go to search census images, but I also use HeritageQuest. Often, I have them both open in browser tabs for a sort of side-by-side comparison. Today I will talk about why I do this, what the benefits could be and also about the differences.
As an added benefit, if you are a North Carolina resident, did you know you have free access to HeritageQuest at your local public library? Ask your local public librarian how to access the NC LIVE databases for free at the library and even at home! Nonresidents and residents alike can use both Ancestry Library Edition and HeritageQuest right here at GHL. (more…)
