We are excited to offer this new online class downloadable class on using US census records. Virtually every US genealogist uses census records, but not everyone is aware of how those records can be maximized for what they do contain. There are limitations to these records, but there are advantages to them as well. If you’ve wondered if you are getting the most out of US census records, this class is for you. The content is a set of downloadable presentations and handouts.
This set of three lessons will look at US census records from 1850 through 1940. Topics discussed will include:
- enumerator instructions and how information “got in the census”
- organization of original records
- working with family structure in 1850-1870 records
- correlating a family’s census records over time
- evaluating accuracy of census records
- determining other records suggested by a family’s enumerations
- crafting census citations
Our approach is laid-back, down-to-earth, and informal while providing accurate information and analysis.
