MILWAUKEE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- After 72 years, the US Census Bureau released records from the 1950 census online. All of the information is in a searchable website, 1950census.archives.gov.
Users can search by state, by city/county, and by name. It's a great way to look up family and local history.
For example, by searching for 'Selig,' we found a 15-year old Allan H. Selig who would go on to bring baseball to Milwaukee, become commissioner of Major League Baseball, and be enshrined in the baseball hall of fame, living with his parents and his brother, Jerome.
Census takers recorded information on who, over 14-years old, was living in the home, where they were from, and their occupation.
