We'll start with an introduction to the census, the different types of federal census records that exist, and the types of information you can find in each one. From there we'll move on to tips and tricks for finding your ancestors in census records, particularly when an index doesn't exit.
After a break for our luncheon buffet, we'll come back and talk in more depth about non-population censuses. In addition to agricultural, mortality and inducstry censuses, We'll also discuss slave schedules and veteran censuses (revolutionary and civil wars) Finally, we'll end the afternoon with more in depth census research. Learn how to formulate a hypothesis when you aren't sure what it is you're looking for. Then use census records to prove or disprove your theory.
You can sign up online through our Workshop web site:
Not an MGS Member? That's ok. All are welcome. Of course, we'd love for you join when you register. MGS members gets $10 off the registration price.
