“History is Waiting, the 1940 Census” Presented by Bonnie Petrovich
1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. with questions and answers

Bonnie Petrovich will show how the 1940 U.S. Federal Census is the largest, most comprehensive, and most recent record set available.  It records the names of those who were living in the United States at the time the census was taken. 132 million people were living in the 48 Continental United States in 1940. Learn how to find your relatives and ancestors and find out what else the 1940 reveals.

Can't find an ancestor on census records?  Do you have research brick walls that need to crumble? Census substitutes may be the answer you are looking for. Blythe Stokes will show you how census substitutes can range from cities directories to non-population census schedules and may include state census records. Come and learn about tools that can enhance your genealogical research.

She just recently received her certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University and is presently working towards earning her professional certificate in genealogy.  She has given genealogy presentations to a variety of groups from the Orange County California Genealogy Society, The Jewish Genealogy Society of San Diego and the North San Diego County Genealogical Society.  She teaches the genealogy classes offered by the Cole Genealogical Library in Carlsbad, California and in cooperation with the North San Diego County Genealogy Society.
