"The Censuses Create a History"  (All)
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Eastern Time (US and Canada)
There is a massive amount of information on the federal censuses, especially if you follow one family, decade after decade.  Additional data fields, such as the year of marriage and number of marriages, number of children born to a mother and number still living, immigration year and naturalization status, tongue (country of origin), schooling and do they rent or own their home, can provide a wealth of information. The presenter discusses how instructions given to the census takers can be important to interpreting information, explores questions about data reliability, and changes to the census over the decades. The end product of a family history narrative can come alive with data pulled from the census.
 
Gail Lewis is currently Education Chairman for the Longmont (Colorado) Genealogical Society. She teaches many classes with LGS as well as near her home in Arizona during the winter. A member of Find a Grave for almost 11 years, Gail runs workshops on this, as well as a variety of topics including genealogy for beginners and today's current topic on the census. 
   
Handout and recording will be available to members only.
