Course Description
Status: 

Every beginning genealogist knows that Federal Census records are a great place to start searching for one's ancestors. However, we can learn more from them than just the places, dates, and names listed.

Knowing the history and historical importance of data collected by census records is an important tool in every genealogist's kit. Gleaning information not indexed in a database can lead to big breakthroughs in your research.

Learn how to sift through and interpret enumerator’s abbreviations as well as your ancestor’s historical data.
