MyHeritage Has 1950 U.S. Census Images Online - Updated Again!

UPDATED 1 p.m. PDT:  I still cannot see the enumeration pages, only the summary page for each ED.

8 p.m. PDT:  Still cannot see the enumeration pages.  

UPDATED:  Saturday, 2 April, 6 a.m. PDT:  Daniel Horowitz commented on this post that the bug has been fixed and all images in an ED are available.

I received this from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage this morning (1 April):


Fantastic news! MyHeritage is the first genealogy company to put all images of the 1950 U.S. Census records LIVE and FREE to access! You can search the 1950 U.S. Census image collection here!

Our team is working tirelessly to index them, and we’ll be rolling out the fully indexed records gradually in the coming days and weeks — so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, check out this great video we produced in honor of the census release and the below infographic about life in the United States in 1950.

Feel free to share this great news and materials with your followers.


Comments:  12:10 p.m. PDT - Pretty fast, MyHeritage.  I will give it a spin and report back!!
12:30 p.m. PDT.  The system gets you to the first image in each ED - the summary page - but not the actual pages of enumerations with names, ages, birthplace, address, occupations, etc., and no links or navigation to enumeration images:  

1 April - 1:00 p.m. PDT:  Posted on the Facebook MyHeritage Users Group and no one has an answer.  It's nighttime in Israel now.  
1 April - 8:00 p.m. PDT:  MyHeritage User Group members say to be patient.  No change to the system.  Perhaps on Saturday.
2 April - 6 a.m. PDT:  The images are now available for all of the EDs.  See below:

Disclosure: I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and gave received other material consideration in past years. I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product. This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.

Hi Randy and all.
The bug was fixed and now all images are available again.

It looks like there are still counties missing from the MyHeritage offering. I can't find any search results for Weber county, Utah, Yuba county, California, or White Pine county, Nevada (I haven't checked all counties, but it seems that there may be more). These counties all appear in both FamilySearch's and Ancestry's 1950 offerings.

Very sorry for the inconveneince.
