Information to enrich your heritage Census records are constantly being used by genealogy researchers to add ancestors to their family trees. This session will looked beyond the first couple of columns and review the wealth of information that can be found in the US census records. It will discuss ways that you can garner each morsel of information from records from 1850 to 1940. A second area discussed will be ways of finding those missing census records. To have a more complete understanding of your family history, all census records should befound. This presentation will discuss methods to find the census records that were indexed incorrectly and now are “missing” when using normal search methods. The presentation will also discuss ways to deal with the lack of information in the census records for 1790 through 1840 and give you ways that may help you identify which records belong to your family.
