June Meeting Flyer

June

Speaker:  Bernard N. Meisner

Topic:  State & Territorial Censuses
Underused Genealogical Tools

Genealogists researching American families are familiar with the decennial federal census records. However, because they were not taken systematic-ally and centrally archived, the state and territorial censuses remain a much under-used resource. Bernard will discuss these census reports and their value in filling in the gaps between the federal census years, and in providing additional information concerning your families, their occupations, and the places they lived.
