So Much to Learn About the Census

by Amy Johnson Crow

Posted on September 17, 2013

The federal census is a cornerstone of research in the United States. It's easy to use and contains a wealth of information about our ancestors. Sometimes there can be so much information that we miss some of it.

You want to get the most information you can from a record, so we have devoted several of our weekly livestreams to the topic of the U.S. census. No worries if you missed the live presentation. We've posted them to the YouTube channel

Here are the videos that will help you learn more about using the U.S. census:

The livestreams are held every Wednesday at 1:00 Eastern/10:00 Pacific. Watch this blog as well as the Facebook events page for upcoming topics. We look forward to seeing you, either in the live presentation or on YouTube!
