This One-Step utility provides
the means for navigating to the census images
on the Ancestry.com website.
Here’s how you would use it:
Click here to return to previous page
1. Do the name search and record the state, roll, part, and page. You can do that search either on
the Heritage Quest CDs, the Ancestry.com website, or the
One-Step Census Search by Name utility.
2. Enter the state, roll, part, and page (including suffix) in the fields below.
Then press the Display button.
You will now see a census image. This will usually be the page you want. But due to errors when
photographing the roll, in some cases you might not be exactly on the page (or even the part) you
want but you'll be within a few frames.
To see how close you are, look at the stamped number at the top of the page if there is one,
otherwise look at the stamped number on the next or previous page. Compare it to the page number
you want, then go forward or backward the appropriate number of frames to get to that page. (Note:
you can use the "Go to Image xxx" field that is below the image to go forward or back.)
You may find yourself on a part of the roll where the stamped numbers are cut off or illegible.
Instead of continuing to find a page with a readable number, note the absolute image/frame you
are on, choose a head of household on that page, and do a name search for that person (including age).
The results of that search will tell you the page you were on.
If you get the message "Sorry, the page you requested was not found", it probably means you were
not logged on to ancestry.com. Go to
and then return here and try again.
If you get the message "Missing Image", it usually means you were trying to access an image before the
first image on the roll or after the last.
