I’m sad

We want all the records from www.familysearch.org to show on the new fsbeta.familysearch.org site

Where are the census records that were in old familysearch.org? Will these still be available e.g. the 1881 England an Wales census?

  • Christine,
    the census collections currently reside on www.familysearch.org but will transfer in future. They are not at present available within the beta test but work to transfer them may or may not be within the the beta test timescale. There are other collections and aspects of the retiring familysearch.org website being prepared for the new format and watch for announcements and news as work continues.
    The 1881 census is still visible on www.familysearch.org under Search Records>Advanced Search>census
    It would be a good feature to include in the beta test and I have no doubt that thought is in other people's minds at present. This is a large technical exercise to develop beta and the workload in producing historic records is immense.

    Is it just me or is the whole thing just too confusing. I used to be able to search for a person quite easily.

    Currently, I can view the 1880 U.S. census images in FamilySearch by signing in. That feature isn't available in Record Search Pilot. Will it be available in Beta? Can we expect to lose this feature?

  • The 1880 US Census will eventually be on Beta and it will have the same experience as the 1910 and 1920 Censuses.

  • I’m happy I found an alternative to this junk
    This is pretty pathetic. Since most of the customer service people answering questions are flying by the seat of their pants here's something definite. I looked up a person on the Atala Mississippi 1850 census on the pilot site. It redirected me here. I signed in, searched and found the census and couldn't look at it because I needed to have a sponsor "like" LDS. I'm not a moron, I've been shut out of this site and all this garbage about files not being brought over from the other site is exactly that garbage. Went to the GenWeb and there was the census I needed free of charge and I felt comfortable using it as I have transcribed many census for various states but I wouldn't transcribe a death certificate for these people. Too many other sites that want me there and don't treat me like a lower class citizen.

    GenWeb is a good alternative to this incomplete Beta site.
