The Program will include two lectures:
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm "Special Censuses: Windows into the Lives of Our Ancestors" by Connie Moretti.
Special enumerations in the years 1850-1890 offer useful information about ancestral communities, occupations etc. that contribute to our understanding of living conditions in the past. Included are the locations of these censuses today.
2:15 pm to 3:15 pm "Pre-1850 Census: Putting Names on the Tick Marks" by Lisa Schumacher. Census records from 1790-1840 appear to contain limited information but learning how to analyze them and chart the "tick-marks" will help construct families and prove relationships for that time period.
Doors open at 12:00 noon. Bring a brown bag lunch and sit, chat, and share your genealogy stories with fellow family historians while you eat.
For more information please contact Charlotte Bocage.
