PCI Webinar - Intermediate Genealogy: Census Records




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

Presenter Maggie Rose is a librarian at the Twinsburg Public Library in Ohio. She coordinates the library book displays and is responsible for the audio book and board games collections. Maggie also teaches computer classes and sits on the Reference and Information Services Division and Adult Services Division Action Councils for the Ohio Library Council. Maggie started library work in 5th grade as a shelver and volunteer in her school library. As a teen, she started shelving in her local public library and has held many library positions since. Maggie graduated summa cum laude from the University of Akron with a BA in English and minor in classical studies. She received her MLIS from Kent State and has been working as a librarian for six years.  Maggie loves gardening, camping and her boisterous family, which consists of a spouse, a boy, a girl, a dog, 6 cats, and 9 chickens.
