Volunteer to improve the accuracy of the 1950 census records. Because the initial name index is built on optical character recognition (OCR) technology, it is not 100-percent accurate. The National Archives is asking for your help in submitting name updates to the index using a transcription tool that is available on the 1950 Census website.

Use the built-in transcription feature to correct and add names to the name index. You can help make the 1950 Census population schedules more discoverable for everyone. Simply go to their 1950 census website.  Click on the door to open the door to your 1950 family history.
