For those with American ancestors, the 1950 US census will be released in April.  It remains to be seen how good the name search function is but at least access to the census will be free.  Even if the search function is poor, you'll be able to find people in small towns or in larger towns if you know a specific address and can use it to identify the enumeration district.  I look forward to seeing myself on the census.

I should find my great, great aunty in Pittsburgh in the US 1950 census. She died in 1961.

My 3xgreat grandad emigrated to America in 1886 after his wife died, to join a daughter out there, and some of his children stayed in the UK. He is last on the 1900 US census and was dead probably by 1906 when Pennsylvania civil reg began.

This is a win, win situation which spreads the burden between taxpayer and user.

Cheers

I totally agree - this is a hobby, a luxury in my mind. The burden should not fall to the general populace. It should be paid for by the consumer.  It could be argued there is an obligation, moral rather than legal, to allow people to access digitised/indexed channels for free by appointment or at local hubs.

It is the fairest way to do it, it means those who consume the information but do not live in the UK also fund the digitisation activity. And I also totally agree with California Dreamer's point on conservation, very expensive business.

I am really pleased to see the price come down versus the 1939 register.

I've cherry picked 5 families I want to link from 1911 to 1939. It will help me prove or disprove bigamy. Could I wait. Yes - will I? NOT A CHANCE! I've been waiting 10 years  :D

No - I'll leave it at least a couple of days to see how it goes.  I've got about 5 close relations to search for, although I'm more than certain that they are all in Halifax, just need to pinpoint them!

Your last paragraph suggests you do not mind paying for access to government records as long as every other taxpayer in the country pays part of the costs, that says a lot about your principles.
Cheers
Guy
I'm sure it does. The idea that only those who can afford to pay should be able to access them says a lot about yours.  :)

Yes, borne from being brought up with my two brothers and our sister by my mother single handed. She struggled to feed us. that alone spend money on luxury items such as family history records. She taught us that everything in life comes at a price, something I have never forgotten to this day.

I may be tempted to look at the 1921 census after midnight, at least at the search engine. I may hold back buying a few entries as it could be January 2002 and 1901 census all over again where the site crashes.
