Yesterday’s news from the U.S. National Archives (NARA) is full of details on the April 1, 2022 releases of the 1950 census, digital availability, indexing, and other details. The first two paragraphs of the news:
WASHINGTON, DC, December 14, 2021 — With the scheduled April 1, 2022, release of 1950 Census records a little more than three months away, the National Archives is completing efforts to digitize those records and using technology to make them more accessible than ever.
“Employees from across the agency have worked on digitizing and indexing the records and developing and testing a new, dedicated 1950 Census website,” said Project Manager Carol Lagundo, who leads the 1950 Census project at National Archives. “It’s taken innovation and creativity to keep this project on track throughout the pandemic and to continue to meet our project milestones. We hope the public will benefit from our hard work.”
I encourage you to read the full details on the NARA website. It includes information on how users can help. https://www.archives.gov/news/articles/1950-census-access
