Preparing for the 1950 Census - What You Can Do Now  (Education)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Zoom Meeting - Preregistration required to receive the link for this class.
The 1950 census will be released on Friday, April 1, 2022. But . . . it won't be searchable, you will need to find your family by looking at the images one-by-one until you locate them. It isn't all bad news though. There are things you can start doing now that will make it easy, okay easier, to find your families whether they lived in cities, towns, or rural areas.  You will also learn what is and isn't included in the 1950 census, requirements, and instructions for the enumerators. Please join 15 minutes early, so that we can get started on time.

Mapping Your Ancestors  (Education)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
On Zoom - Preregistration required to receive the link for this class

You’ve found your ancestors on historical maps. Now you’d like to find those places on modern maps. To do this, you will need to use “geo-referencing,” that is, use landmarks on historical maps to line them up with modern maps. Modern digital tools and digital maps make this relatively easy to do, allowing you to visualize where your ancestors lived and traveled. In this class, we’ll discuss where to find historical and modern maps and show how to use free online tools overlay them with each other.
