1940 thru 1990 Census Help

To make application (named person, family or legal representatives only) for this restricted information, visit the United States Census Bureau "age search" service where they will "search the confidential records from the Federal population censuses of 1940 to 1990 and issue an official transcript of the results (for a congressionally mandated fee)."

Just got this info, to see it, go to

or, for the NARA site itself go to

Thought others out there may be interested.
