Getting Ready for the 1950 Census: Searching with and without a Name Index

by Steve Morse  

10:30 a.m. CT

Saturday, 08 Jan 2022

Webinar

When the 1950 census will be released in April 2022, it will not have a name index. So finding people in the census will involve searching by location instead. Even when a name index becomes available, there will still be many reasons for doing locational searches. The census is organized by Enumeration Districts (EDs), so the location needs to be converted to an ED before the census can be accessed. The One-Step website contains numerous tools for obtaining EDs. This talk will present the various tools and show circumstances in which each can be used.

Speaker: Steve Morse is well-known to the genealogy community. He is the creator of the “Steve Morse One-Step Webpages” for effectively locating ship manifests, censuses, vital records and much more. An engineer by training, he is the creator of the renowned Intel 8086 chip, a workhorse of the industry. His genealogy work has earned numerous awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and an Excellence Award from the Association of Professional Genealogists.
