Summer Genealogy Discussion Sessions


This summer, we are planning to offer monthly round table discussion sessions on genealogy topics, starting in May and ending in August.
These sessions will meet on the second Monday of each month at the Mid-County Regional Library from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Plan to attend and keep your genealogy projects active throughout the summer.
No reservations are needed, just show up and bring your questions or problems to the group.
Who knows, someone may be able to offer some assistance or a suggestion that makes a big difference.
We will have available as many power strips as possible so you can plug in your laptops and follow along as we solve the toughest genealogy problems. We will need volunteer assistants for each session.
Please contact Jim Maloney at maloneyj6@gmail.com if you can volunteer as an assistant for one of the dates below.

Tips & Tricks
A U.S. census is an official count of the population living in the United States on a designated day set at intervals. The census places an ancestor is a specific place at a specific time.

Prepare a census timeline before you begin. Review what you will find in the census you are searching. Work backwards from the most recent census. Expect spelling and age variations.

Soundex is a system of coding names for the census based on sound rather than alphabetical spelling. A variation called American Soundex was used in the 1930s for a retrospective analysis of the US censuses from 1890 through 1920. To save time, a free Soundex converter is available at www.rootsweb.ancestry.com.
