Counting People in the 20th Century: At Least from 1900 to 1950

Censuses are the starting foundation of most genealogical research. Not only do censuses provide information about ancestors, they provide clues for additional research. We will concentrate on finding clues in the available censuses from the 20th century (1900-1940) and developing strategies from those clues. We will also touch on similar information from the soon-to-be-released 1950 census, as well as a developing a strategy to search that census before it’s indexed.

All presentations are Zoom and sent to members or others who are invited.

If someone wants to be invited to a meeting they can contact us at waukcgs@gmail.com.
