Title: Everything you ever wanted to know about the Census (almost)
Contact: Eileen Crosby, 4134208107
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.  
Limited to 30 participants. Pre-registration strongly recommended: (413) 420-8107.
