PCI Webinar with Maggie Rose

Intermediate Genealogy: Census Records

Wednesday, September 4th from 12:30 – 1:30pm  

Must register by 08/30

Every beginning genealogist knows that Federal Census records are a great place to start searching for our ancestors. However, we can learn more from them than just the places, dates, and names listed.

Knowing the history and historical importance of data collected by census records is an important tool in every genealogist’s kit. Gleaning information not indexed in a database can lead to big breakthroughs in your research.

Learn how to sift through and interpret enumerator’s abbreviations as well as your ancestor’s historical data.

At the conclusion of webinar, participants will know:

       How and where to access census records

       The history and historical importance of census records for genealogical research

       The type of data collected and how it relates to genealogy

       The differences and similarities of local census records

       Introductory knowledge about European census records
