Census Data: More than Just a Population Count - Supplemental Schedules - On-Line adds content

by Janis Minor Forte

 Every genealogist is familiar with Schedule I of the federal census as the official population count.  However, this schedule does not present the census in its entirety.  In the form of supplemental schedules, from 1820 to 1880, this lecture presents skills to mastering techniques and finding aids and searching these schedules places the family in context with their environment.  The internet search and finding techniques demonstrated in this lecture improve record analysis skills and enable the participants to increase their case study content.  This lecture includes digitized selected state schedules that record specific time focused issues.
