Continuing Census Improvements From

Ancestry continues to make improvements in its census offerings, and this is a reason to revisit your search attempts at that site. If you have not been successful in finding your ancestor in previous searches, it is worth the time to retry occasionally to take advantage of the improvements.

For example, in October the site announced that it now has new indexes for 1920 U.S. Census, including 20 million alternate names as well as new and improved indexes for 1790-1840 with additional fields.

Don't forget that if you do not have a personal subscription to Ancestry, you can get free access to it at most public libraries.
