Updates to HeritageQuest

HeritageQuest just released a new user interface and added content. They've added lots of great research aids and made their census map collection easier to find.

HeritageQuest's census collection has been expanded with complete, indexed census records for each US Federal Census 1790-1940 and they've added all of the supplemental (veterans, slave, etc.) censuses too. It's also much easier to search these collections. Search options are now similar to Ancestry's.

HeritageQuest also has searchable Freedman's Bank records, Revolutionary War pensions, family and local histories, city directories, various federal government documents, and PERSI--an index of names and articles from hundreds of genealogy periodicals.

Best of all, HeritageQuest is available from home with your library card!
