HeritageQuestOnline has 1880 Census data

While census whacking this afternoon, I discovered that HeritageQuestOnline has an every name index, linked to the images, for about half of the states in the 1880 census. I haven't heard anything about this - did I miss an announcement recently (or even long ago)?

This is good news - and hopefully they will keep adding states over the next few months.

In the same vein, did you know that HQO has 1930 head of household index for five states - CT DE MD TX VA - linked to the images? They've had this for awhile, but it indicates that they may be working on other states.

If you know the roll number and page number for a given census page (say from an earlier search on microfilm) for any census year, you can bring up that page on HQO by going to the "Find by Page Number" tab on the main search page. This is especially useful for 1830-1850, 1880 and 1930 if you know the roll number and page number.
