The US Federal Census is a go-to resource for family historians and may be the first record set you turn to as a researcher. Like most records, however, it wasn’t designed with genealogists in mind. The census isn’t as precise as we hope it to be and as researchers, we often make assumptions regarding the information provided. This five-week course will delve into the ins and outs of the US Federal Census, providing you with the full context of population and non-population schedules and helping you use census records (from 1790 to 1950) more fully and more accurately.
