|Location:||Community Room - First Floor|
Join us for an introduction to one of the most useful sources for family history research: Census records. Hillary Schau will delve into the history of the U.S. Federal Census and explore how the census questions and census-taking changed over time. She will demonstrate how to search census records and interpret what you find, pointing out the most common pit-falls and problems. Hillary will also explore some U.S. Census substitutes for the 1890 Census (destroyed by fire) and show participants how to find non-U.S. census records using Ancestry Library Edition.
