This notice comes from the Missouri Historical Society and refers at least to St. Louis addresses--

The subscription service Ancestry.com has indexed the street addresses from the entries in the US federal census for the years 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, and 1940. You can search for your home's address and perhaps discover the names of the people who lived there during these census years.

Search tips:
Go to the Search tab and select Census & Voter Lists. In the Lived In search box, key in Missouri and check the Exact to This Place box.
In the Keyword search box, key in your street address (omit the street suffix [i.e., Ave., Blvd., St.]), and check the Exact box.
When searching numbered streets, try multiple variations. For example: 2618 South 12th, 2618 S. 12th, 2618 South Twelfth, 2618 S. Twelfth, 2618 12th, and 2618 Twelfth.
In addition to searching the Census & Voter Lists category of Ancestry, you may also want to search under All Categories. For example, the addresses from the World War I draft registration cards have also been indexed.

Visit the Library & Research Center to access our Ancestry.com subscription for free.

(The free access probably refers to members of the Missouri Historical Society.)
