|18||Beginning Genealogy – Let's Start with the Census!
6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Census research can provide a strong foundation for building your family tree. It will tell you where the subject lived and it can tell you about possible changes in the family name, how many children a couple has had—and their names, when a couple was married, when an individual or family came to the U.S. and so much more. The census was taken every 10 years beginning in 1790 and the information gathered changed from decade to decade. Some states also have census records that are equally valuable. The class will learn about census records, where to find them, and how to conduct a successful search.
