MyHeritage's USA & CAN censuses free this weekend

With this year marking the 125th and 127th anniversaries of Labor Day in the United States and Canada respectively, MyHeritage is giving family historians the opportunity to learn more about their ancestors' trades, professions and day-to-day work activities in North America.

Starting today and continuing until close of play on Monday 2 September, MyHeritage is opening up its US and Canadian census collections; together, these hold some 740 million records.

The US census collection is made up of 54 datasets – 18 federal census collections and 36 state or country census collections – while the Canadian record sets include eight national census collections and 10 focussed on specific provinces.
