Mining the Census Records
LOCATION: ELGIN LIBRARY
By Steve Szabados
Census records are used extensively by genealogy researchers to add ancestors to their family trees. This session will looked beyond the first couple of columns and review the wealth of information that can be found in the US census records. It will discuss ways that you can garner each morsel of information from these records.
The presentation will also discuss ways to deal with missing information in head-of-household only census records for 1790 through 1840 and give you ways that may help you identify which records belong to your family.
