Access points for US Federal Census records online

When Ol' Myrt recommends searching the scanned images of US Federal Census records online, I think of three places:

ANCESTRY.COM (fee-based to individuals, free to FHCs) To locate a FHC (Family History Center) near you, see:

HERITAGEQUESTONLINE.COM (fee-based, sold to libraries, not individuals) To locate a library near you see the growing list at

Yes, there is the free USGenWeb CENSUS PROJECT, but it isn't complete. See if your ancestors' localities are online by visiting

Happy family tree climbing!
